About me

Born in 1988 in the USSR, this contemporary interdisciplinary artist and director now resides in both the UAE and Russia. His works have gained recognition in cultural hubs worldwide such as Moscow, London, Paris, Athens, Milan, Barcelona, Venice, Rome, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. His primary creative labs are based in Dubai and New York. He serves as a consul for the global organization Art of Health, and his pieces are housed in museums in Moscow and New York.

The artist's life is marked not only by creative successes but also a series of remarkable trials, including miraculous rescues from life-threatening situations and accidents. Each of these moments only strengthened his dedication to life and art, reflected in his work where each piece tells a personal story.

He particularly values the opportunity to create large-scale multidisciplinary projects. One such project involved collaboration with doctors and scientists, enriching not only his understanding of art but also inspiring him to pursue studies in "creativity psychology." The artist continuously explores the boundaries of perception, inviting viewers to step beyond the familiar and see the world from a new perspective. His works are an invitation to dialogue with oneself, shifting the focal point, expanding consciousness, and transcending binary systems to motivate the exploration of forgotten doors to one's true self, posing the eternal question:

academic work
• Conducted a scientific study together with psychiatrists on my art audio recordings on the topic: “Analysis of the influence of an autonomous sensory meridional reaction on a change in the mood background.” During which he proved the practical effectiveness of his project both with the problem of affective states and for the independent regulation of a person’s emotional background without identified disorders.
artist statement
In my works, I strive to offer viewers an alternative view of the mundane, transforming deeply personal experiences and stories into surreal images. These plots not only reflect my inner world but also resonate in the soul of everyone who encounters them.

My art is a study of the process of self-discovery through the acceptance and understanding of a variety of life experiences. I invite the viewer on a journey where resistance gives way to trust, and chaos is transformed into order. Surrendering to the flow of events and trusting the world, we explore these worlds together, and the viewer, in the process of immersion,
discovers themselves.

Each brushstroke, each fragment of the scene in my paintings and films, is an invitation to reflect, to see the familiar in a new way, and perhaps to uncover something hidden or underestimated within. I believe that my art is a catalyst for self-discovery and transformation for everyone
who encounters it.
