About me

It’s artist’s works that speak instead of him best of all. But I will briefly specify those

moments of my biography that I consider to be milestones on my way to professional

sculpture making.

In 1999 aged sixtreen I got my first prize: a diploma of laureate of Pushkin contest for

the bust of Alexandr Sergeevich Pushkin. At the same year I was enlisted to the State

Bashkir Pedagogical University which is now called in honor of Miftakhetdin Akmulla. At

the same time I became a free participant of the sculpture faculty of the Ufa State Arts

Institute named after Zagir Ismailov. I left the University after the 4th course but

studying at the studio of the sculptor-monumentalist Yuriy Fedorovich Soldatov,

honoured artist of USSR, helped me to get in 2003 to the Saint-Petersburg Academy of

Arts and to finish it with a honors diploma in 2010.

At the present time my studio in partnership with the sculpture-manufacturing industrial

complex Lit-Art, the company Piterstoun and architecture studios is able to realize

projects of any complicacy: from fine plastic to the monument of any height. You can

also get acquainted with my works in the exhibition center «Petersburg artist».
