Artist Statement

My artistic work explores societies and human patterns in its transient states. My background itself is rooted in change. Born and raised in the USSR, my understanding of rules, social status and human abilities were redefined when I moved to New York City. I quickly learned to adapt and observe things carefully and move fluidly throughout my surroundings. Due to my personal history, I posses an amalgam of opposing belief systems, in which I constantly struggle to find refuge. Perhaps, this is why I have thus far traveled to over a dozen countries. From my observations I have witnessed an increasing amount of globalization and homogeneity around the world and through this I have developed a strong interest in examining patterns of humanity and urban development. For this reason I share my observations and convictions through visual art.


My work functions as a meditation on our unacquainted society. Focusing on the ever-growing enslavement of the individual within certain social structures. That is, I have witnessed the entrapment of the free mind and the overall lack of acknowledgment of this engulfing phenomenon. I explore this phenomenon in my work through the aesthetics of globalization, urbanism and the underlying structures of the architectural form. The work focuses on form, light and space through the use of line, repetition, contrast and perspective.
