Born in St. Petersburg on November 3, 1993
I’ve been drawing my whole life ever since I can remember – a huge portion of my time, however, has been devoted to sculpture, which I did between the ages of 12 and 18.
At the age of 16, I created a unique tattoo style based on imitation of pencil strokes, which quickly became world-famous and made me a household name among graphic tattoo artists across Russia and Europe.
My career was built on that exceptionally authentic technique – at different times, I represented such brands as Nocturnal, TattooPharma, TattooRevive, and did a huge variety of press publications and interviews.
At 23 I opened my own studio in St. Petersburg.
Three years later, at 26, I moved to Moscow.
In 2020, amidst the global lockdown, I took a brush for the first time and challenged myself to try a radically different kind of art, painting.
This was definitely a right call, as painting turned out to be a perfect way of self-fulfillment – I left the tattoo industry and fully devoted myself to easel and oil.
At the end of 2021, I was first contacted by a big art gallery, ArtGaudium from Italy. However, unfortunately, our collaboration did not bear fruit.
As luck would have it, the day we terminated the contract, I received a message from MADS. I am incredibly excited to be engaged in a digital exhibition and discover the amazing possibilities of such format.
