Biography and information

The author's experiment "Voila" (French for "here, here it is") "Voila".
My character, lifestyle, and way of creative expression is to quickly put an image on any surface. When I create, I feel like a blimp pilot.
Born in Lyubertsy, near Moscow, April 23, 1986. Intuitive researcher, experimentalist, self-made, experienced drawings, sketches, sketches without art education.
Life credo: "One sail and soul, Destiny and Motherland are one!"
I use everything I can get my hands on: pens, pencils, etc.
When I start working, I never know what I'll end up with. The hand goes by itself.
Move your hands and "voila.
To date, works in several formats:
1. Illustration of a photograph. "Anti-Photo. In 2022 I began unconsciously to draw from photographs, but not a clear reproduction of the image, namely: atmosphere, energy. Not from all of them, but from those from which energy comes. There are pictures that pulsate, that speak. My intuitive drawings are information from the energy field of the photograph. It is interesting that a captured picture can tell a lot in interpretation. Proved more than once! The works are used by me in the field of psychology, as well as by other psychologists and psychotherapists, specialists working with images and symbols.
"Anti-Photo" is first and foremost a reflection of the inner core, the natural frame of a person. Drawing is unconscious, without rules, without intent, the basis of the image - feelings.

At school I dreamed of becoming a teacher of Russian language and literature, my experience includes all kinds of preparations for school and city festivals. I tried to enter the acting profession, but I was afraid that I would not become famous and in demand, so I entered the economics department. Due to my creative approach to everything in life I achieved success in this field as well (consulting services: from accounting to legal practice). My life is full of contradictions, everything that is incompatible or requires innovative approach is for me. Graduated in psychology, conducted educational classes with children (drawing, composing fairy tales). The withdrawn children were taught only after the removal of psychological clamps through art therapy, games, layouts, dancing. Everything in this life is interesting. Today I combine all my acquired skills.
