LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
"We come from the past: myths, fairy tales and their heroes are our roots, they told me from childhood". My works are the synthesis of different cultures and popular traditions, in which to research and rework their heroes through images of the ancient world, between mythology and folklore, in the immobility of the passage of time.
The works are in ceramics, in the continuous search for different forms, with the use of clay molded exclusively by hand, voids inside, subjected to double cooking and use of ceramic glazes. In some works the combination with other materials is used, such as wood or glass. Some statues have also been designed as decorative lamps and therefore combine the artistic image with the functionality of a real lamp.
I graduated in 2001 in "visual arts and technical drawing" at the State Pedagogical University of Vitebsk (Belarus). In the same year I participated in the National Competition in Minsk (Belarus) for University Students Neo Graduates of all the National Art Colleges, ranking third.
I worked from August 2000 to May 2004 at the “Gimnasium” Institute in Vitebsk (Belarus) as a teacher of sculpture, painting and technical drawing, with particular specialization in clay processing techniques.
Since 2004 I live and work in Italy.
In 2017 I acquired the title of Technician of Restoration of Cultural Heritage (paintings, wood, stone and ceramic artifacts), after having attended the three-year course at the "Enaip Veneto Center for Restoration Andrea Mantegna" in Piazzola sul Brenta, Padua , Italy.
Occasionally I take part in ceramic art exhibitions and competitions (among others: Finalist in the Exhibition of the International Ceramics Competition Cica 2019, L’Alcora, Spain --- Personal Exhibition July 2019, Padua, Italy).
I occasionally hold lectures on clay and ceramic working techniques and drawing and painting lessons.
