As a child growing up in the Soviet Union/Russia, I’d go to drawing school where I learned basic drawing rules. I also spent a lot of my childhood with my grandmother, who introduced me to the world of art.
I grew up and got a degree in architecture, which has helped me understand perspective and geometry, especially when drawing street views or city objects - both favourite subjects of mine.
Art has always been my total escape, clearing my mind when I have any kind of problems. Over the years, I’ve experimented with many different drawing materials, but since I discovered watercolour it became my favourite material.
I like to think my pictures are my messengers and I’m happy if others feel that emotion when they look at them too. www.objectsaround.me
Also I’m planning to run a workshop about urban sketching techniques and basic techniques in watercolour.
