Who and where are you from?
I’m a surrealist artist from Russia. My mother gave drawing lessons while working at school, so I was familiar with art since my childhood. Then I decided to become an engineer and then I studied at the National University of Science and Technology (MISiS). In 1990, I left the university and decided to become an artist. This idea had been slowly crystallizing while I studied. And one day I asked myself: “what do you want, man”? And the answer was to become an artist. And now I’m doing something I’ve always wanted to.
How you got into this?
I attended the courses at the different art studios taught by professional artists. But my principal teachers are the masters of the European Renaissance of XIV-XVII centuries.
What is your driving force?
I guess this is constant asking myself about who I am. In my opinion, an artist is a creator of parallel universes and going through them is a kind of ritual. For me working with a painting is like a meditation. A language of art is the language in which we talk to God.
What kind of work you do and why?
Taking about the format of my works, I prefer large canvases. Further I'm going to do some sculptures and some kind of fabric design.
Tell us more about your thought process.
Can you remember Michelangelo’s words? «Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it».My method of making a painting is a bit similar with the only distinction: the extraction of the image takes its place from the texture that I create on a canvas.
Please share with us the one modern artist whose work you find Interesting?
Alexander Sigov, Vladislav Erko, Olga Dugina and Andrej Dugin.
