About Me

Artist Statement

  Hello everyone! I am professional figurative and landscape painter. I've Master’s degree in Art History and Restoration. Took part in a various projects of the preservation and restoration of significant cultural sites of Latvia, Russia, Germany, France, Italy, UK. Also I am worked as researcher specialist of 16-19th c. painting. During my research were rediscovered for art world paintings by Sir Francis Grant PRA (1803 – 1878), Luigi Salvatore Gentile(Primo) (1606 - 1667), Pietro da Cortona(1597 – 1669), Carlo Francesco Nuvolone(1609 - 1702), Wilhelm Timm(1820-1895) and others.

 

    Background in academic painting have provided a good base for my art, firmly grounded in the realism traditions. Art turned to social themes, such as ethnicity, religion, traditions and humanity. Through my art, I strives to convey the diversity of people and cultures, to show things that people have in common, as human beings inhabiting one planet.

 

  I think that the main condition for maintaining balance in a constantly mixing world is Respect and Gratitude to the culture that has become your home. Through my art I call to humanity. I try to serve the understanding that life is diverse but important in any form. We all are living beings and we are an integral part of this world, no matter which religion or nation we are. Life couldn't be wrong! It is main condition, that helps make our world more peaceful, harmonic and happy for us, our kids and next generations.
