Currently lives and works in St. Petersburg. The artist's works are in Russian and foreign private collections.

"Having received an art academic education, I continue to develop in various modern media, being in search of new forms and images, I am constantly experimenting with artistic languages. But the lion's share of my fine practice is still black and white graphics.

In my work, I often come across academic drawing with modern trends, at the moment on the verge of between them is the most interesting space for research for me. It is there that you can find out the limits of normality and subjectivity, reality and mysticism, releasing the images of the subconscious in a more accessible visual manner.

Creativity must always be sincere to find its viewer. Creativity is a constant search for our sides. This is a pleasure from the find. This is a continuous resentment from what has already been done, as a sign that it is necessary to move on.

While working on illustrations for Bram Stoker's Dracula, I needed to find a solution for the performance of this piece. Having tried several techniques, the choice fell on the monotype. The miraculous magic of printing, its randomness bribed me, forced me to look for new images and meanings. In parallel with the work on illustrations for the dark novel, the Warp series was born.

Deformation (from Lat. Deformatio - "distortion") - a change in the relative position of body particles associated with their movement relative to each other. This series presents the deep deformations occurring inside a person. Perceptions of events, experiences and thoughts, as well as external factors pass through us, distorting the cognitive shell. Deformation is the fixation of these sensations." 
(Pavel Bushuev)
