I was born in 1987 and raised in Moscow, Russia. Graduated from the Stroganov Moscow Art and Industry Academy with a degree in environmental design in 2011. After graduating from the academy, I worked as an interior designer for 10 years. Painting has always been my hobby, an occupation for the soul. And in 2021, I decided to turn my hobby into my life's work. Why? There is always a customer in design. And the author cannot fully express himself, he must express the wishes of the customer, and not his own. I believe that only art can fully reflect the personality of the author, reveal his uniqueness and inner world. And only through self-knowledge will the artist be able to bring beauty into this world in order to show and tell other people about it. For me, painting is freedom.
