About me

I am a Russian watercolor artist based in Budapest. Since my early ages I loved technologies and experiments and even wanted to become a spaceman, but later I discovered a space on Earth. The name of it is Art.

I admire nature and I celebrate this love in numerous works with birds, flowers and animals. All these creations show almost indefinite variations of forms, colors and most important constructions.

New theme in my research is the anaglyph watercolor which has never been made before in this manner. I use the possibilities of anaglyph principle to develop the composition of each work and to tell a story through it.

I love to work on the edge of classical attention to details and modern methods of visual expression.
