I was born in Ukraine, the city of Makeyevka, Donetsk region, but I grew up and live in Vladivostok, Primorsky Krai.
Since childhood, I loved to sketch cars, knights and superheroes from cartoons. My first teacher was my older brother. I had a coloring with muscular characters and I stroked them with colored pencils in different directions. I remember how my brother explained to me that if you apply strokes in the shape of a muscle, the picture becomes three-dimensional. Since then, I realized that I really love to draw. At the age of 8, my parents enrolled in an art school, and after the 9th grade, I entered the painting department at the Art College of Vladivostok(2006-2011). My curator was a member of the Union of Artists M.V.Kholmogorova. Already during my studies, I took orders for portraits in oil, painted walls in graffiti style and began to earn money by drawing. After graduation, I entered the Far Eastern State Institute of Art in the department of painting(2011-2012), but did not continue to study, took the documents in the first year. Instead, I decided to comprehend painting on my own, talked to artists and began to paint more and more on order.
At the moment, my works are in all art salons in Vladivostok, I sell creative paintings in private collections in China, and I accept orders mainly for oil portraits from photographs: single, double, family.
Exhibition "Painting Vladivostok" May 1-19, 2018
Winner of the Art Battle, Shtykovsky Ponds 2018.
I am preparing a fund of paintings for a personal exhibition.
I specifically share creativity and work on order. When a client turns to me for a portrait, my task is not only to give a complete portrait resemblance on the canvas, but also to hear the person, his needs and to complete the picture as he himself imagines it.
On the creative path, for me the most important thing is to express the feelings that come from the heart. Bare the soul in front of the viewer. There can be no framework and rules, I respect all styles and directions, the main thing is to choose an idea, technique and material so that it fully expresses the artist’s feelings on this topic. Artists are divided into two types: those who love chaos and those who like to draw a specific object.
Simple stories with great volumetric shapes on canvas are great for me. Therefore, "for myself" I paint flowers, non-academic portraits and natural minerals. I work on oil on medium and large canvas. I try to paint in the a-la-prima technique (for 1 session), having completed the maximum for the second session with glazes and not to disturb the freshness of the spots and paintings by the long elaboration of details.
This is my path at this point in time.
