Creativity has always been with me. And I have always loved to observe and analyze too. Painting and collage have become the final point, which I went to half my life. I realized that my passion for analyzing the world around me and my ability to see elusive details could be splashed on the canvas with bold strokes. Or put together into a vivid, coherent picture of a collage. Many people look, but do not see what is open to me... And then my paintings and collages become a guide to a new reality.
I was born and live in Russia, in the beautiful southern city of Rostov-on-Don.
The bright colors of the world around me have inspired me since childhood, so creativity has always been with me. I studied academic drawing for 5 years in the art studio of the art and graphics faculty of Rostov State University. Now sometimes I regret that in my school years the profession of an artist did not seem serious. Perhaps many of you are familiar with this?
But I have always loved to observe and analyze. Mathematical analysis and a passion for logical predictions won over drawing, I enthusiastically analyzed large amounts of data and made reliable predictions in the field of forensic science.
And yet it was Painting that became the final point, to which I went half my life. It came to the realization that my passion for analyzing the world around me and the ability to see elusive details can be thrown onto the canvas with bold strokes. It turns out that many look, but do not see what is open to me ... And then my paintings become a guide to a new reality.
At 51, a new life and oil painting began! Over 3.5 years, more than 160 paintings were painted. The main style of painting is impressionism, because free strokes with a palette knife perfectly reflect the artist's emotions and vision of the world on the canvas. About 50 paintings found their new home in different cities of Russia. In December 2021, one of them became a member of Nikas Safronov's NFT project.
Is there a limit to the creative expansion of consciousness? Is it possible to go beyond the boundaries of traditional painting at 55? Easily! Digital illustration and commercial collage opened up new sides of my creative imagination. Bright, juicy cosmic and esoteric subjects are reflected both in painting and in digital collage.
