Artistic activities

The main artistic activity began in 2013. At that time the author was engaged only in black and white graphics and illustrations.
The debut work "Children Unborn" (28.10.16) was made with black gel pen on heavy A3 paper. At the same time, the series "Images of Tartaria" was opened.

I began to learn the technique of performance in tempera and acrylic only from the middle of 2017.
He is mainly engaged in painting on subject themes of mythology, history, religion, esoterics, cosmogony...

He is the author of the works
"Children Unborn" (28.10.16) and "Children Unborn" (12.03.19). The works are made in a hybrid style of icon painting with classical. Plots of paintings are based on cosmogonic concepts of ancient peoples of Tartaria (Scythians, Russ, Chud, Erzya, Mogoly, etc.), as well as the connection of historical and cultural-mythological lines of these peoples.
In many aspects of his works he shows an alternative version of history, of which he is the ideologist.

As an example, the work "The Apparition of Ange. Approval of the Crystal of Silicon Life" (04.08.2019), which shows an alternative version of the Erzyan mythological story.
This work opens the Silicon Age series
There's also an open Red Civilization series

Since 10.06.19 it is a part of a commonwealth of independent researchers, an Internet resource
