Biography :

 

I was born in St. Petersburg Russia, 1964

 

From birth I was exposed to and surrounded by art. I’ve studied many various art forms throughout my life. In 1973 I came with my parents to the West in search of freedom. First to Europe then to the U.S. It was in California that I discovered surfing. For me it was “the ultimate freedom”. The first wave I caught changed my life forever.

 

Surfing is the axis my life revolves around and it is the inspiration for my creativity. In 1985 I came to Indonesia to surf Padang Padang, since then Bali has been my home base. In search of waves and new ideas I travel the world, often putting myself in extreme situations to taste and capture the essence of  reality.

 

I express my passion for life and surfing by working in many mediums. Painting, shooting photos, producing video, writing electronic music and fabric design.

 

I often use photography as a “base layer” for my paintings. I am into a full multi sensory experience and there are no limits to my artistic expression.

 

To share the beauty of my experience is why I do art. My intension is to inspire and awaken.

My Motto is : Live the life you love!
