I was born and grew up in Moscow. My work draws on themes and imagery from Russian literature, history, and folklore, and applies these to wider concerns of contemporary experience and culture. I have a broad practice founded in drawing, painting, writing and digital media. My recent work explores the dysfunctional form of masculinity in the current Russian context, as well as the universal themes of family, childhood, displacement and exile.
