"I knew I'll be an artist while attending the Elementary and the High School of Fine Art in my hometown in Kazahkstan. For the next two years I improved my artistic skill at the College of Fine Art in Middle Russia and became an Art Designer.
My passion for art brought me to the Academy of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture in St. Petersburg Russia, where I studied Classical painting for four years. Based on my education, my work style is Russian Academical Realism.
As a professional artist I participated in more than thirty individual and group exhibitions. My work has been shown in galleris, public and corporate collections in Kazahkstan, Russian, Germany, France, and the US.
In 1996 my family moved to America, where I joined the United Scenic Artist Local 829 in New York City work as a stage artist for different studios, movies and shows. For the last three years, I am permanently living in Syracus, hoping to find new inspirations from the Great Lakes and what upstate nature has to offer.
