“After my grandmother’s death, there was a lot of crystal glass left. She collected and carefully stored it, as many ‘post-Soviet’ citizens did. In our family, we were prohibited from utilizing crystal glass. Grandma was saving it for a special occasion. That occasion, however, never happened. My grandmother passed away a long time ago, but her dream is still alive. The Soviet ideology of building a better life, the rapid-moving forward, pretentious greatness were reflected in the lives of ordinary people. And their fragile dream left a shadow – the sensation of variability and instability of all that exists.”
In 2013 graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture, an easel graphics faculty.
Works with various media. In his artistic practice pays great attention to the aesthetics of interaction, works with themes of myth and reality, studies the influences of the past in the post-Soviet space.
