About the Artist:
I am an illustrator and tattoo artist from Chelyabinsk, Russia. I am 35 years old. I find inspiration in the surrounding nature, ancient legends and artists of the Middle Ages. In my work, I try to express the dark side of our lives. I try to see the beautiful in disgusting things.
I live in a cold northern city on the border with Siberia, this affects the mood of my work. In my city, winter lasts almost 6 months, but we have very beautiful forests and mountains where I often walk with my family.
I work in a graphic style using ink and paper and sometimes I use a computer to draw.
