About Me


I was born in Elista, Kalmykia, Russia; the only Buddhist region in Europe. Kalmykia, is nestled between the Caucus Mountains and the Caspian Sea. There, I was raised by a single mother in a modest household. I have always enjoyed artistic creation ever since I was a child. I found drawing, painting and sculpting as a creative outlet.


When I was young, I attended art school where I learned different subjects ranging from art history to technique. In 2008, I moved to Moscow, where I was exposed to Russia’s rich art and cultural heritage. I was immediately inspired. In 2011, I moved to New York City and was swept away by its contemporary art scene. Since then, I have relocated to Boulder where I feel incredibly grounded and ready to release my work. I now spend my time creating art inspired by the beauty of Boulder.

About My Art

My artwork is an abstract representation of many things, past and present: the beauty of Rockies Mountains, the dark history of Kalmyk people exiled to Siberia during Stalin regime which lasted 13 years, the current political state of America, my immigration experience and my deep personal feelings.


My art packs a punch with its dynamic composition and various experimental materials. I used plaster, foil, paint, glitter, and beads to create organic movement in my work that resembles mountainous earth with clashing lines, loose brushstrokes and swirling beaded detail. Within my pieces, I use ancient and rare Mongolian writing called "clear script" that very few in the world know how to create. This is just the first blossom in a field of artwork that I have yet to create.
