Reality 2.0 Solo Show
In September — October 2016, my first solo show was held at Vladey Space Gallery, Moscow. I've made eight big multilayer artworks dedicated to the phenomenon of digital reality that for the last few years has been replacing physical reality in front of our very eyes. I've also painted the walls, columns, and the entrance to the gallery to give the space the final touch. All in all, it was a great experience and I'm very happy with the result.
II Artmossphere Street Art Biennale
This year I curated a special project at the 2nd Artmosspehere Street Art Biennale in Moscow. I invited five Russian artists with a strong graffiti background — Alexey Luka, Petro, Slak, Sy, Pavel Rtue — and took part in the project myself. I wanted our styles both to look well together, as well as complement each other. Keeping in mind the main theme of the biennale, e.g. The Invisible Border, all the artists left their comfort zone and worked with volume, creating sculptures and installations. It was a really refreshing experience, and I'm very grateful to the organizers of the biennale for inviting me and to the artists for making it happen.
I took part in a huge group show dedicated to football and ice hockey, the most popular sports in the world. It was organised by Vladey auction house. The line up included more than 60 Russian contemporary artists. I'm honoured that my artworks became the main images of the show.
Montana Cans video
In the beginning of January I shoot some footage for a short video dedicated to the release of the Montana Black limited edition spray can with my graphics. In the video I tell my story, talk about what I do, and about my work for Montana. Check out the video after the jump.

Big ups to the co-curator Monika Norse and all the gallery staff. If you happen to be in London, drop by till March 22!
The Wall Elements Book
This November a Moscow based photographer Alexey Partola published a book featuring 25 profiles of the best Russian artists with strong graffiti background. Each profile includes an interview and a 1x1m canvas made by each of the artists especially for the book.
The Long Tomorrow Show
In September 2014, I had a two-man show with a talented Russian artist Alexey Luka. The exhibition entitled 'The Long Tomorrow' was a part of the first Moscow International Street Art Biennale called 'Artmossphere'. I presented my new body of work consisting of a series of eight plywood reliefs and four canvases inspired by science fiction.
