In 2009 I finished Academy of Indastrial Art in St.Petersburg. I have classical art education. When I was in the Academy of Art, we were taught not be construed from nature but also by copying the old masters. This is the fast way to learn skills, develop the taste and techniques. Coping for me is art too, and of course, it is a great experience.
My original works are calm, not bright colors made in sketchy manner.
