My story —

When I was 5, I was fond of drawing, not as the fancy-work, but as my intuition. I was trying to create completed work of art using, shape, color and composition, and I knew I will be an artist.
The teachers at art school and art college probably showed me the way to leave “reading and writing,” and to find real springs of art – Nature, me as myself, great teachers (my teachers – Andrei Rublev, Alexi Savrasov, Ilya Repin, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Henri Matisse).
My studies in Center of Art restoration (Moscow) gave me a chance to get a deep knowledge of the technology and technique of painting – and this helped me to be free and happy in creation. I want to believe that my little personal story and the large history of Art are connected.
