I live in Russia. In 2019, I graduated from the St Petersburg Academy of Arts named after Ilya Repin. I paint pictures devoted to the topics that touch me. I work in different genres: portrait, landscape, still life, mosaic projects, stained glass projects.

The painting "Joan of Arc" is dedicated to my beloved historical figure. I painted it from November 2018 to June 2019.

The predominance of red in my work carries the image of fire, which played many different roles in the fate of Joan. This is the colour of the flame of her faith, the colour of martyrdom. Joan is burning on the fire of the Inquisition, but she is burning like a candle that gives people light and hope. And, of course, this colour is the colour of blood and horror of the Hundred Years' War. I wanted to show that Joan of Arc triumphed in spite of her tragic destiny. The light of her selfless fight for justice still lights our way.

Second Place

I was born on August 19, 1989 in the Altai Territory. In 2007 I entered the Barnaul Construction College, the Faculty of Architecture, but the craving for painting, sculpture and drawing did not leave me. In addition, I entered the Altai State Technical University, majoring in engineer, but the choice did not take long, of course, I chose art. Since 2015 I have been taking part in various city, regional, all-Russian and international exhibitions. I worked a lot in the open air, traveled to different places, creating sketches. I, too, have always been interested in the work of New Zealand artists, their works inspired me to create my paintings. I write in the genre of realism, on various topics. I love to travel with a sketchbook behind my back in Altai. Despite the fact that I work not only with painting and plaster, but also create monumental paintings in chapels and private interiors. But the creation of my own workshop did not leave me, so I decided to work on my own, opening a workshop.
