Born in USSR in 1977, Michael was drawing and painting since being toddler and never stopped. After graduating from Fine Arts School and taking additional courses at Saint Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design, he made fine arts his hobby while building career as a game designer.
After relocating to Cyprus several years ago, Michael was impressed by the local nature and started to create artworks inspired by the beauty of the mediterranean island. Later, he discovered the power of abstract painting as a tool for letting out different states of his mind, a kind of art therapy that helps to get know and understand the inner processes and emotions.
Michael works with different mediums - pencil, watercolor, ink, acrylic, oil, paper and canvas.
