It took me long to realise that art is what I wanted to do on a life-long basis, but once I did I was rather persistent. I quit my job in marketing and in 2006 after a year of preparatory studies entered the Surikov Art Institute - one of the best art schools in Russia. In 2009 my family moved to Montenegro where I continued my studies in the University of Montenegro, Fine Arts Department (graduated in 2012, Specialist's Diploma). Now I live in Bonn, Germany and work as an independent artist.

  1. You are based in Bonn?!!! Please do let me know when you exhibit here - Bonn, Cologne - Montenegro is too far for me. I live near Cologne.

    1. I've only seen this comment now! I'm going to have an exhibition in Bonn in August, but if you want, we can meet each other earlier, it's always nice to get to know new people!
