I am an artist from Moscow. I graduated from Moscow Pedagogical Institute, Fine Art & Graphic Department and have practiced both fine arts and teaching ever since, simultaneously more than 20 years.
My first exhibition happened in 1985, later I have presented my work in many exhibitions, auctions and projects, both in Russia and in Europe. My paintings are to be found in private collections in Russia, the USA, Greece, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Italy and France.
I worked as a teacher of fine arts at Moscow Pedagogical Institute, Fine & Graphic Art Department; at School-Studio of Moscow Art Theatre, Stage Costume Department; at British Higher School of Art and Design in Moscow.
As teacher I have always aimed at creating an integral system, a consistent range of methods that would allow me to effectively teach drawing and painting to any person regardless of skills. These methods come as the result of experience; they are tested in practice and proven to give fast results. As well, I have a vast experience in creating specific short-term courses, not to mention fine art workshops, etc.
I published some textbooks in Russian and recently one of them was translated in English. It is called Composition of a Picture: Theory and Exercises and is available on Amazon both in paperback version and eBook version. Practically applicable theory of composition given in clear and logical way - it might help not only to artists but to photographers as well. It's really the very new word on topic of artistic composition.
In 1994 I got an award of the All-Russia Exhibition Center for teaching. In 2006 my biography was published in the encyclopedia Who is Who in Russia.
In 2015 I moved to Spain and now live in Barcelona.
