I am professional portrait painter and teacher from Russia residing in Catalunya, Spain. I teach painting in Barcelona Academy of Art, I share my knowledge by teaching workshops worldwide and I do online mentorship (check the links panel)
Feel free to hang out here, watch me painting and paint along if you like. I am here to share my passion about portraiture and art in general, my love for videogames, fantasy. scince fiction and to help other artists to grow confidence in portraiture.
“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.”* ― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
