- About -

An idiosyncratic specimen of globalisation, I was born in Almaty, Kazakhstan, my father being North Korean and my mother being Russian. Having caught a glimpse of the ex-USSR, I have a nostalgic, conflicting perception of political and cultural systems. Unable to fully assimilate into any one culture, I find myself as an outsider with an eclectic artistic taste. Art represents the act of seeking, assembling and immortalising beauty. Through my artistic practice, I recreate the state of inspiration and emancipation, experienced during my childhood. My works strive to capture the ephemeral impressions. The concepts, which I explore in my work, include the globalisation, surveillance, nostalgia, utopia and eroticism. Recently, I was involved in initiatives with the Royal Watercolour Society, Art Below, Art Warz in London, Red Dot Miami and Los Angeles. This year, I will have shows at the NYC Untitled Space and the New York Art Expo.
