was born in Leningrad in an artistic family. |
I've remembered conversations about art at home
since my early childhood. My grandfather and
father were both artists.
Colors have always attracted me.
I remember grandfather presenting me
with a set of thick Chinese markers .
The first picture I made was of a large red
car on the bright blue background.
After that I began a series of 200 drawings
of the life story of my favorite toy.
I worked on collages from
colored paper as well.
My grandfather, Renat Fridman, was my
main mentor for most of my life .
The time of
studying at the Art College of N. Roerich,|
and after that at the Academy of Arts was full of
meetings with various interesting and talented art
teachers. I still keep in touch with many of them
and they are still very important to me.
After graduating from the Academy
I came back to the college as a teacher
of painting and composition.
I taught a group of students from the
painting department from the start until
the defense of their diploma works.I became a member of the
Art Union of Russia.
My paintings have been on many group exhibitions. |
I have also organized a few personal exhibitions.
Since 2014 I participated in exhibitions in San Diego
and Los Angeles,USA. I also was working on
commercial works, mostly portraits and still lifes,
and as a teacher of painting and drawing for
children and adults. Being exposed to a new culture
I was inspired to try new directions in my paintings.
| Art is a very important part of |
my life. I am equally interested
in portraits, still lifes,
landscapes, and interiors.
I think that for the artist it is very important
to reproduce a purely personal view of the
surrounding world. It is the hardest and
the most interesting thing about our work.
