Valerievich Sitkovsky

born in 1999 •
Born and live in Moscow, in a poor Jewish family. In my childhood I was a constant witness of house scandals and beatings of my mother when I was 7 years old (2007) my father died, six months later my mother was brutally beaten by gangsters in Orekhovo-Zuyevo before my eyes, a month later my older brother died, jumping with a parachute, my grandfather got drunk and died two months after my brother, and from 2007 to 2009 I lived in the same apartment with my grandmother suffering from schizophrenia, as well as with my mother and a crowd of relatives. In 2009, the grandmother went out the window, committing suicide. He traveled around the world a lot, at age 16 he made a nightingale on the El Teide volcano (~ 3800m high) on the island of Tenerife (Canary Archipelago), at the same age his mother tried to dissuade suicide 5 times, although he tried to commit suicide 2 times . In 2018, he quit his job, a university, a student project, to which he devoted two years of his life, a girl and plunged into art, the only thing that interests me. In March 2019 he finished work on the book "The Aesthetics of Sleeping Areas", which sounds like my own art manifesto, describing my approach to work, views on art and life. On my canvases I describe life in the post-Soviet space, my life, a look at the fundamental things, both for all people and for those who live in the territory of the former USSR. I strive to find a new one in art and I am improving myself in it every day, because, in principle, I have nothing more to do. Thank you for your attention.
