Ausbildung / Education

I was born and grew up in the Crimea. I got my first drawing skills at the Kerch Art School named after I. Serdyuk. In 2013 I entered the Kharkov State Academy of Design and Arts.



Meine Kunst in eigenen Worten / My art in my own words

Paintings I paint mostly with oil paints. Working with this material brings me great pleasure. The texture of the smears, the blending of new shades and the bold combinations of colors on the canvas – this is my passion.

Most of my paintings are portraits. I like to convey the emotions of a person, a deep look or an elegant gesture – something that emphasizes the individuality and uniqueness of the person being portrayed. I prefer to use saturated and contrasting colors, as well as a dark background that does not distract attention from the person, but, in turn, makes the picture more intimate, intimate.
