Having started my life journey in Russia and being a very creative child, I was actively encouraged by my family. I was drawing and sketching (mostly crying tigers and horses at first) adopting, with years, a more heroic fantasy style. I’ve graduated from an Art School and settled on attending live model drawing sessions and sketching, mostly for myself, occasionally “publishing” my attempts at tattoo art on my friends’ body parts. All along I was fascinated by art in its many forms, classical as well as contemporary, and would frequent art exhibitions, galleries, private shows, theatre or manor houses with private collections.
In Stockholm where I spent 12 years before arriving to London my favourite places to visit were Fotografiska – a contemporary photography museum, and Millesgården – a former home of a sculptor Carl Milles with its vast grounds filled with his astonishing melancholic work and antique sculpture collections.
In London I’m working in the live event world, supporting and selling events. With all of us moving into the digital space with every day that goes, I am excited to be part of the Agora art forum initiative that seeks to promote digital artists in this new space and to facilitate their introduction to a broader viewer by means of virtual events.
