Artist about his work: "I was born in 1965 in Sochi, Russia. In 1987 I studied higher education in St. Petersburg. I have been participating in art exhibitions since 1995.
The main subject that interests me as an artist is the relationship between man and society with the technologies of the future.
Robotization and artificial intelligence are the themes of my last painting series.
On one hand, as a painter, I am attracted by the aesthetics of the world of machines and robots. On the other hand, as a writer and director, I am interested in the process of the relationship between robots and humanity.
For me, the most important thing is to formulate questions, open new topics for discussion, encourage the viewer to think. I spend a lot of time working on a sketch of each painting. In The 3D program, I find the right angle, I can change the lighting and
achieve the perfect composition. Only when the sketch is completely ready do I move on to painting. The main technique of my works is a classical oil painting on canvas. The traditional format of genre painting seems to be the most suitable for storytelling in the form of pictures.
The main task is to create such a work where there would be no artist's dictatorship in colour, rhythm, and plot. It is much more interesting for me to create an environment for the viewer, a situation, a reason for thought with the help of a picture.
The subjects of my paintings were invented by me or borrowed from famous artists of the past. This is how I build one big project that includes many different aspects of our life."
