Member of Artist trade union of Russia.
I’ve got a master's degree in finance. Then I used to work in digital marketing for 4 years in a marketing agency and Google AdWords in Moscow. Nothing related to art. Now you can guess that at some point, I decided to quit my job.
I love creative things all my life and tried many things: handmade things, such as clothes, jewelry, worked as a makeup artist, painted, voice acting, wrote for student media. During my marketing career, I wanted to be an illustrator and attend to the British school of design in Moscow. At the end of my education in 2016, I realized that I was an artist. Before that, I did not believe in myself and tried many creative things besides art.
I like to think about some topics and develop concepts. Sometimes I do it for years. Sometimes I get back to the topic when I get new information or ideas. Sometimes I work on different projects at the same time. I believe that ideas pass through us. And we are creative people responsible for implementation. But still, I dive into the techniques that I use.
I like the mix of styles and media. I don't need to use only 1 technic in my artworks. I can use them all if I want to. I can implement all my life experiences, explore new techniques or media in art practice. This is the best way for me to be myself.
I don't work with Instagram influencers, cafes, and other none professional art institutions. I'm sorry If you are one of them. I want my artworks to be safe in the hands of people who love them, and I would like to become a part of art history.
I was born in Russia. Now I’m living in Canada. I moved because I didn’t feel safe and free. One of my main themes is cosmopolitanism, based on my experience and Stoic philosophy. I’m creating a series of artworks about cosmopolitanism, femininity, and self-identifying. I want my art to make people jump from their everyday reality to thinking about more global things.
