The judging criterion was originality, interpretation, quality, demonstration of ability, and usage of medium. Other factors, such as the clarity of the images provided and their ability to be viewed online, as well as relating to the theme, also contributed to our decision. “Best of Show”, “First Place”, and “Second Place” winners received a monetary award in addition to special recognition.

I discovered my love for photography almost by accident. My father is an avid amateur (could be pro IMO) and I grew up with his photos gracing our walls. When I got the chance to take a photography class in high school he was my inspiration to take it-I had no idea it would change my life forever. In the 15 years since then I have worked with various photographers and photography studios in the San Antonio area, eventually branching off on my own. I have worked in various specialties from youth sports, weddings, events, portraits and travel/landscape. I LOVE adventure, beautiful colors, nature and amazing people and am blessed to be able to capture all of these.

Painting- is my way of living. Actually I was painting as long as I can remember myself. It’s a trap, I have no other options. In fact I tried to escape once, got education in management and was working in media business, but it didn’t help, my passion to painting won.
Since that I Graduated Stroganov Moscow State University of Industrial and Applied Arts. Also took intensive course and professional development course in Repin Saint Petersburgh State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. And now, when I’m professional artist, I see that there are too much more to learn. So I work on my skills every day.
I live and work in Moscow, Russia. My paintings took part in numerous exhibitions in Russia and abroad, they are a part of private collections in different countries (Russia, Germany, UK, Lithuania, Romania, Belorussia, USA, Ecuador).
As a Russian painter I’m addicted to Russian realism traditions but keep an eye on modern tendencies. My art is the way to reflect my thoughts and world’s beauty. I work in different genres: portraits, landscape, still-life ets. I take inspiration everywhere: looking at the kids playing in the yard, or travelling far away from home, In a sunny daylight or a rainy night. It’s hunting: to catch beauty from life anв reflect it through the painting.
The painting “Invincible Armada” appeared in my mind after I saw parade of sailing boats in Spain. The boats were really tall, as skyscrapers in the sea and they appeared like ghosts from far away and moved slowly and gracefully. This was really a breathtaking view.

“Time is moving” painting is an allegory for my present time now as an artist and that time is going by fast. Life is like a marathon race and to reach your goals you need time to do so. I’m the guy on the ground that was moving too fast and now needs time to figure out what historical contents he is going to end up at the outcome of this race. Or, maybe I could just be hanging on to the idea of creating art and see how it turns out. I paint in a variety of mediums and all styles from abstract, realism to surrealistic ideas. I also do commission portraits for friends and pet portraits. I’m really all over the map with ideas of subjects and totally enjoy it. I have taken some courses in college and studied art history. I am for the most part a self-taught artist and have been painting for well over 35 years now. For me, making art is a great way to be at peace with yourself and in hope that people will like the art that I am doing….
