Born 1995 in Tver, Russia
Lives and works in Cellino Attanasio, Italy

As a result of my versatile education, I became interested in combining different practices, techniques, and materials. Both my artistic practice and academic research used to explore an individual’s inner world, looking for his hidden fears, desires, and dreams, in order to discover how he can survive and find harmony with the world around him. My art is closely related to the theme of existentialism, exploring the boundaries between the natural and the artificial, putting up the viewer to a reality, where every action, gesture, even the most ordinary, acquire a key meaning, and where the gaze is turned inward.
In 2023, parallel to my artistic career, I began my journey as an art instructor, specializing in classical drawing and oil painting as well as working with soft drawing materials and experimental techniques. My teaching approach treats academic drawing as a fundamental basis for any form of art, but at the same time as a fertile ground for experimentation. From this perspective, drawing aims to be the primary means to explore the world and deepen its understanding.​​​​​​​
