I am a professional European-based artist with an academic background. 


I was born at the crossroads of historical epochs. Thirty years after the collapse of the USSR, all the cultural and historical heritage surrounding me during my childhood is now seen as a kind of utopia , which has become part of the cultural code of my generation. 


The themes I deal with are time, collective memory and the illusory nature of the world around us. All this leads me to doubt the progressive evolution of our civilization as an absolute good. 


I use a figurative language of representation, moving between different painting and graphic methods.  


In my works, the main focus for me is to create an atmosphere where the objects placed in space are perceived as images with an undirected reference. This means that signification of each symbol I use can be changed depending on their combinations, thereby interacting with the audience and providing them with the opportunity to build their own series of associations. 


I want everyone who interacts with my works to feel the uniqueness of the moment in which they are present and to realize that they will never be the same again.
