This page was born out of my friends' love for my "Oriental motifs" series, where cute donkeys appear. These loyal and kind animals are great helpers and true friends. Also here are pictures of the General series "Oriental motifs", which is important to me

​I was born in the Middle East, in Uzbekistan. This is a bright and original country with a distinctive culture and good people. Since childhood, I have absorbed the colors of the East, its sun and beauty, amazing way of life, and of course, I traveled a lot in this region and nearby countries. Children's emotions are very strong, and of course, they remain forever.


These impressions broke out in my paintings. Now I live in the North, in St. Petersburg, where most of the gray cold sky and little sun. But even now I often resort to my memories of my Sunny Homeland and its colors, and this is expressed in my today's paintings dedicated to the East.
