Biography

I was born in Vologda, north of Russia. Art has been a part of my life since childhood.
I studied painting, book illustration and animation at Republican College of Art, the Polytechnic University and the Artists Animator's Course at Kiev, Ukraine.

Since that time I'm a regular exhibitor at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and New Zealand's array of galleries and organizations. My paintings are in private collections both within New Zealand and around the world. Also I'm taking part of some international fant... Read More

Philosophy


My works have a slightly surreal flavour. Inspired by the world's myths, fables, and tales of imagination. I desire to create works that will 'delight' or 'enchant' the viewer. I want my paintings to add up to more than a beautiful — it sometimes 'magical' looking works of art.
