Arts and Cultures
CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOU?
Thirteen years ago, I moved from St. Petersburg, Russia to St. Petersburg, Florida. My relocation opened a new world for me, that of American contemporary art and how it can alter the ways in which we visualize and conceptualize the world.
My B.A. and M.A. degrees are from St. Petersburg State University for Culture and Arts. While attending the university, I spent most of my time at the Hermitage Museum and visiting galleries, and art talks by local and international artists. This experience led to an appreciation of the interdisciplinary approach to art, culture, and philosophy.
My education set the stage for my future career, and the way I perceive and create art. My professional experience includes working as an international education consultant, online art gallery owner, art event coordinator, and educator of arts. My passion is creating art exhibitions and events that unite local communities and artists.
My goal is to encourage conversation about various topics like the role of art in the modern world, the mission of art during vigorous conflicts, and the power of art to create dialogue and unite people with different backgrounds and worldviews.
