Designer, artist, mosaicist, calligrapher,
spiritual psychologist

Since childhood I have been fascinated by the East - language, art, way of life.

I received my second degree at the Institute of Asian and African Studies at Lomonosov Moscow State University thanks to an educational grant from His Royal Highness Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud.

Studied the art of Arabic calligraphy with Turkish, Iranian and Syrian masters. Took courses in the ancient art of painting on water - Ebru and more modern Reng-i Su with Turkish masters, the art of mosaics at the Moscow School of Arts and with the master Marco Bravura. In my works, I like to combine different techniques: Reng-i Su and Arabic calligraphy, mosaic and Arabic calligraphy.

I actively participate in Russian and international exhibitions, events and business forums Russia - Middle East.

Here are just a few of them:

International Ebru Day in Prague (Czech Republic), Abu Dhabi and Dubai (UAE)

International Exhibition of Arabic Calligraphy in Grozny (Russia)

Exhibition of modern art in The Bibliotheca Alexandrina (Egypt)

Personal exhibition in Nazım Hikmet Library (Russia)

My works and my name are included in the State Catalogue of the Museum Fund of Russia, the archive of the National Museum of the Chechen Republic, and the World Calligraphy Museum.

Mosaic panels, paintings and Arabic calligraphy decorate the offices of companies such as Sberbank, Lukoil, Etihad Airways, Abu Dhabi Ministry of Culture and Tourism (Moscow, Abu Dhabi), Egyptian Cultural Bureau, and private residences in Russia, Sweden, Egypt, UAE and Turkey.

In 2019 - 2021 several of my paintings were sold at auctions at the AYA Gallery in Istanbul and Ankara.

Ebru course
Ebru is the technique of painting on the surface of water using special paints, with subsequent imprinting on paper, canvas or fabric. A unique drawing is the result of a combination of energies of paints, water and the master, which then becomes an interior decoration, a background for a postcard or an accessory. The name is translated from Turkish as “on the water”.
