Biography

I was born in 1990 in Leningrad. I have great artistic ambitions and have been painting since early childhood. In 2006 she graduated from art school number 2 in St. Petersburg. I am interested in art as a theorist / researcher, and as a practitioner. In 2017 she graduated from SPbGUKI, specialty - art history. My area of interest now is: contemporary art, design, science fiction, meditation.

I began my career as an artist in 2017 with my first personal exhibition in the Borey Gallery (St. Petersburg), entitled The Nightmare of an Art Critic. This was followed by two more solo exhibitions and five collective. My paintings were exhibited in the “Borey Gallery”, the space “Golitsyn Loft”, IFA (creative union of artists of St. Petersburg), the “Pig Snout” museum, etc.

The global idea of my work is I. My works are sharp, ironic and conceptual. I draw inspiration from the Soviet poster, German expressionism, multrealism. Mostly I work with acrylic. Over the past three years, I have formed my clear, recognizable style. The main character of my paintings is a woman - an artist. Creating posters, I conduct my in-depth research on the place and role of women in modern society, the world. I share with the audience the sharp and frank results of my research. Drawing allows me to visually express what is not always possible to convey in words.

I also do graphics, create surreal portraits with many details in mixed media (paper, acrylic + pens, liners, pencils, ink, markers).

Some of my paintings are marked by famous figures: Andrei Bartenev, Tatyana Nikonova, American actor - performer of the role of agent Cooper - Kyle McLachlan.

My works are successfully sold in St. Petersburg and Moscow, are in private collections in Russia, S.Sh.A. and Finland.
