About Series

Notes is a series of small format drawings which reflect my sense of the city.

I was born in a village, yet most of my life so far has been set in the cityscape. Now that I live in Moscow I find myself constantly aware of the surrounding buildings. As I progress through these curious objects of different height, shape and colour, they combine in my mind into a kind of an urban patchwork. Whenever it comes to making graphic notes I try to keep to my initial impression, that of a village dweller discovering the city for the first time.
