I aim to portray a city’s energy on my canvases. The sound of rain hitting the cobble stones, a taxi’s tires splashing in puddles, street noise, people’s voices, car horns—all excite me to no end. Often, I not only use my brush to capture the essence of a city, but a palette knife to express my own energy, which ultimately becomes part of the canvas. When I paint, I re-live the experience of the city—it’s lighting, sounds, and vibrations.
I am originally from St. Petersburg, Russia. Twenty years ago I immigrated to the United States by way of Viena, Austria. I am an artist, illustrator, former art director, and current college art teacher.
