About

I believe art is about pairing a good idea and skill. My art is strongly influenced by my cultural background, and is based on classical drawing techniques developed and honed in a traditional Russian School of Art. I look for a resonant concept in ordinary things – they can be small, intimate things, things relating to my family, or the local scenery. This could be houses in my street or still objects on the table before me. I am regularly approached to undertake commissions for private portraits. Nowadays, when so many artists simply rely on copying static images and photographs, I am proud to demonstrate my creativity, imagination and technical skills in drawing from life freehand!I have been painting pretty much all my life and many of my works reside in private collections in Europe, Australia and Russia. In 2006 I moved to Australia from Russia as a qualified professional. My art has greatly helped me to settle in the new life and brought me a lot of good friends. I paint what I want when I want it. I don’t pressure myself to deliver ‘results’. This attitude keeps me free for experimenting and saves the fear to fail. I start doing something and I succeed… or I do not.
