I am a Russian away from Russia, who has made his home in England, and created a place for myself through music and art. But my mother country is always present in my work - in the dreams of the dark forests that inform my paintings, and in the fires of my photography that burn with nostalgia for a long lost home.
Maybe in the modern world, we are all exiles of one sort or another, souls wandering far from where we were born, always seeking on our journeys to forge new relationships with other travellers, and making life for ourselves out of this experience.
Through movement we can find our freedom. And through art this freedom can be shared. This is my aim.
