About

 
BIOGRAPHY
Born on the coast of the Black Sea in Novorossiysk, Russia in 1989. Immigrated to the United States with my family in 1996 to Jonesboro, Arkansas. In 2013 moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas to further pursue my art career.  Art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have no formal training or art education, my work has developed only through experimentation and repetitive practice. My philosophy comes from my love for music, cars, people, fashion and anime. My approach to art is the same as playing music; I break techniques and structures down to the core and adapt them to my personal style and methods which I have developed over the years. 
I’ve always been drawn to large scale art, such as Street Art and the Ideology of graffiti, specifically through; the use of big bold colors, the mentality of having your voice heard and knowing that whatever I paint it isn't going to last forever.  Through those interests I have learned to use spray paint, which has since become my preferred medium for large scale works. It enables me to work as fast and creatively as my brain wants to and is also physically engaging.
STATEMENT
Why do I make art? I make art because that’s just what I do. I paint to escape, I paint to be me, I paint to excite and I paint because I dream. I am not trying to change the world, just live in my own version of it. My main outlook on art is "everything has an expiration” just like societies of mankind, we all rise and fall out of existence, so I paint to make my own existence a little bit brighter. My art is like my life; impulsive, rash, unorthodox, big and precise. Nothing is predetermined during the creative process, just a general ideal I’m trying to reach. Be it through acrylic paint, spray paint, canvas, walls, screen printing, film or digital media, whatever happens between the beginning and end is a spontaneous journey and I have a front row seat.
