I was born in Moscow in 1953. In 1981, having lost my Soviet nationality, I found myself, after a long stay in Italy, in Canada. With the Canadian passport I arrived in France in 1987 and settled there permanently. I obtained French nationality in 1993.
Trained at the Moscow School of Fine Arts, I then tried to get rid of some of the shackles of the russo-soviet school and to join the great European tradition coming from the Italian Renaissance to Balthus, passing through the Flemish masters, Poussin, Puvis de Chavannes...
