Bio:

I am a figurative artist and work with a range of mediums and styles. I produce narrative works that drift between past and present. Drawing on traditional and iconic Russian influences I re-assemble the connection between various different worlds.

In my practice, reality displays its fragility and transparency and is shrouded by a more tangible and vivid fantasy. Opposing elements of the dreamlike and the day-to-day share the same canvas yet form a complementary contrast to each other. The final piece ends up being not fully in either world, but existing in a stasis, constantly spinning and morphing.

Decorative and rich in appearance, my work is an exploration of displacement, be it geographical, historical, spiritual or mythical.
