I am a Ukrainian born British artist living and working in Paris and London. Through a convergence of interest in nature, science and time perception; my art explores the allegorical resonance and fantasy involved in man-made, altered nature within our society and juxtaposition of time.
I started my cross-disciplinary artistic practice in 2018 and since then have developed a vast body of sculptures, paintings, drawings and art installations.
My early design career creations utilised high tech materials and were exhibited in the Science Museum in London, the Science Gallery in Dublin.
Trained in academic painting, I moved to the UK to study Performance Design at St. Martins College.
As a multi-award-winning designer with works ranging from art to theatre costumes and high fashion, as well as projects for the London Royal Opera House, Scottish Ballet and Alexander McQueen. My background influences are frequently spotted in the dramatic shapes, rich textures and bold use of contrasting components.
Hailed as a “Best New Talent” by The Wall Street Journal, Vogue and many other publications, I am now focusing on creating fine art.
Studying performance design and working in theatre in the early stage of my career has had a profound impact on the way I convey ideas and express artistic value in my practice. Although I was trained in Academic drawing and painting, I was always drawn to contemporary forms of expression and the sculptural dimensionality of art.
I like to experiment with visual imbalances, contrasts and a full array of materials.
Thematically my practice revolves around the concept of time and nature: altered or artificial nature, modification of environments, acceleration of growth and changing ecosystems. My work investigates the juxtaposition of times and contexts.
