As an artist, I mainly create graphic and oil paintings of the architecture of cities where I have been or which I would like to visit.
My main difficulty was that I could not meet with other artists to exchange experiences, thoughts and plans for future projects. The impossibility of participation and organization of exhibitions became a big problem as well.
I began to use my online network more actively.. I strengthened the network I already had and exlored some new ones online.
I can say for sure that before Covid there were many more creative events organized by private artists. These events helped me to get inspired and meet new people, artists and buyers. Now everything is slowly becoming like before, but I can’t say that it feels the same.
During the quarantine period, I was very productive and finished some paintings that I kept putting off, created a series of graphic and watercolor pictures with the classical architecture of St. Petersburg, where I spent the quarantine. I could say that isolation pushed me to create more.
At the moment, I’m living in Spain and I have started to make prints of my artworks as well as experiment a lot with different techniques of visual expression.
