I am visual artist working in style of Russian Cosmism. The essence of this style is philosophical interconnection of all terrestrial and human with Cosmic energy and Universal mind. And I try to show in my artwork how this energy is penetrating all and everything, and how all nations and beings are connected with each other and grow from the same roots.
I work with unique material developed from ancient Russian iconography recipe - tempera paints with essential oils. Some years ago I have started to add fluorescent pigments which change color in black light. This allow me to show unlimited variety of colors demonstrating the other, energetic side of life.
My paintings are in the permanent collection of International Center - Museum named after N.K.Roerich, Moscow, Russia; and in several regional art museums of Ukraine and Russia.
I have participated in about 100 exhibitions including more than 50 solo exhibitions.
