Artist | Traditional Art
Russia
Hello,I'm a begining artist from Russia.I specialize in avant-garde art,especially surrealism and everything near.I like mystical,paranormal and unexplainable things,pathapsychology,shyzophrenia and other like this.
Main themes of my art is my dreams and something I call "visions".By visions I mean some strange images which can blink for a second in my head when I had a headache,when I'm relaxing in a bath,lying in a bed or just close my eyes.
I'm also very big lover of retro,old games,old films,old posters and old music,it has some atmosphere of sadness and madness for me.
My favourite countries is Japan,Czech republic and Poland.Those countries have very unusual bright culture and now it's a great centers of avant-garde art.
My favourite artists are Salvador Dalli,Yazek Yerka,Zdzisław Beksiński,Hieronymus Bosch and others.
I love to spend my time watching anime,art-house movies,playing indie-games and making art of course.
I also very mad from all movies of Jan Shvakmayer,it's a godlike man for me.
Interests
Yesterday I had a terrible night.The last time I had such a fear of video games when I was a child.Last weeks I spend a lot of time playing Earthbound on SNES to figure something about linking with Yume Nikki.
(If you do not know what Earthbound is,just look here)
The strangeness of this game lies in the fact that it's not some terryfying surreal horror,at first sight it looks like a simple adventure RPG with good locations,interesting plot and other.But sometimes there interposes some crazy and rigid elements.Scarefull and frightening soundtracks,depressive or bizzare locations and other like that,what makes this game something like a horrible cursed death file from another world.But everything strange in this game seemed just strange for me until I met Giygas,the final boss of this game.And I was scared as never was.Tears ran down my face.
And I'm not exaggerating.I CRIED because of this.But it was not a cry of scared child,I was shoked because of such a terrible and disturbing boss and it was just a silent cry.This hypnotising glitched parallax and soundtrack make my head spining.And this very last part of a battle reminded me about FACE in Yume Nikki...Oh my god,I just have nothing to say (especialy on English lol),but last night was a real nightmare with shock,tears and brain paralize.
Here is some of my screenshots,boss battle video and FACE animation event video.

Oh,thanks for your great compliment,but...I'm not sure that Russian art is always superior. Yes,we have great strong school of realistic painting and drawing but it comes to over-conservative and over-patriotiс point of view. Realism is high-appreciated art dirrection in Russia. Everybody want to paint old
crones, sweet patriotic landscapes with Oka river and birches which is ectualy not Russian but Chinese tree,religious and patriotical scenes,war scenes showing this pestered heroism of russian warriors in WW2 and other like this. If you want to make something avant-garde you have to face a lot of difficulties and misunderstanding,so that's why we particulary do not have any surreal artists,they are all moving out from the country to Europe or America.

I meant that the most bizarre and comforting art I have seen tends to come from Russian people. I know nothing about art history.

Maybe you are lucky because for me it's hard to find somebody with strange and unusual ideas in Russia.Sorry if I offended you someway,I just tried to say that Russia has a lack of people with rich fantasy and unusual creative mind now.
