I am a full-time artist working in my home studio. My preferences in art are rooted in the St. Petersburg’s tradition of painting, which developed from the ideas of the Russian Avant-Garde. In my childhood and youth I was fortunate to study under Solomon Levin who was a well known art teacher/artist in St. Petersburg (former Leningrad, my home city). I have lived in US since 1998. I am a member of Associate Artists of Pittsburgh and show my works at exhibitions and Pittsburgh’s galleries.
