“Holiday”


ARTIST STATEMENT

An old soviet car “Saporoshez” driving through the Moscow suburbs to the beach, in the background an electrical power plant. In Russia and especially in Moscow I like this kind of strong contrasts. Whenever I discover such places , I am looking for stories in it. Mostly it is a kind of surreal, but very important for me is the authentique touch.

ARTIST BIO

Little theatre, comical creations full of surprises, strange collection of objects, entities and things: the mystery and juxtapositions blur and blend the lines of the composition. Emerging out if these fabricated fantasies are elements of mystery, which draw in the viewer and engage the imagination.
