Born in Moscow, Russia I have immigrated to United States at a young age with a refugee status. This transition had a profound influence on me as an individual and as an artist. In 2007 I earned Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art from Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids Michigan, attending graduate program on a merit scholarship. My passion is for figurative painting and I developed a style that I describe as Expressive Realism. Although an emerging artist, I been fortunate to display my works in solo exhibitions held in Chicago Gallery 180, East Lansing Hanna Center, Big Rapids Ferris University, Muskegon Museum of Art, Grand Rapids Van Singel Fine Art Center, and a group show at Erebuni Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and other New York venues.
