Kristina Kovalchuk

Kristina Kovalchuk is a young artist born in Moscow in 1999.

The artist creates colorful, abstract, surreal paintings, giving preference to details, an abundance of color and illusion in her works.

«With my work I try to answer the question „How can I connect an abstract thing?“ by creating collections of fragments, contrasts, ornaments. Wildly transforming, turning images and deviating from accepted orders, I intend to present the elements of the picture more vividly,» says Christina about her work.


Daria Semenova

Daria Semenova is an artist who works in various media, combining in her work both sculptural compositions and graphics and painting. In her sculptures, Daria often uses polymorphic, unusual, light, pliable material.

Graduated from the British Higher School of Design and the Moscow School of Contemporary Art. She has been a member and co-founder of the art collective «DRUZBA» since 2020.

In her artistic practice, the artist explores the processes of distortion and transformation, resorting to methods based on the use of various techniques associated with chemical reactions. «In my work, I create a kind of pseudo-reality, which is based on my attitude to the surrounding reality, as well as personal reasoning in such areas as mythology, history, religion and evolutionary forecast,» says Daria about her work.


SFKNG

Sofa Semenova is a young artist working under the pseudonym SFKNG. She graduated from the University of Derby in Shanghai in 2018 with a degree in Graphic Design and Visual Communication.

Sophia’s creativity is very intuitive and emotional. The main thing in her paintings is color, but forms and composition are born during the process of writing the work. According to the artist, she does not have a specific plan or sketches before starting work. The first and most important point is the choice of colors and their combination with each other, and you can also use any available materials that suit your mood. Free negligence manifests itself in «mistakes» and stains, which become the main elements of the sofa’s performance.


Oksana Afanasyeva

For Oksana, abstraction is a way to step away from the rules of academicism, where she gives herself the freedom to express feelings through intuitive choices of color, composition and technique. According to the artist, she does not have clearly developed ideas about this or that work; she relies on intuition and the subconscious.

«My work is a search for my own artistic language with the help of random lines and spots, a heap of details, layers and color chaos».


Anna Konopleva

Anna Konopleva is a young artist from Moscow.

The works show everyday life, touching on topics such as relationships between people, modern technology, and the transience of life. The artist looks at the world through a positive prism, so his works are to some extent reminiscent of «memes.»

«I joke a lot in life, I try to look at everything from a positive point of view. In part, humor is a defensive reaction to the complexity and uncertainty of the world around us. Every job for me is a way to find a solution to my problem. Joking allows me to do it safely, because even if you don’t get the exact answer, in the end you can just laugh,» says Anna about her work.

STEVIA

STEVIA (Arianna Stefanenko) is a young artist for whom art is a place where peace and tranquility reign. In her paintings, she conveys the state when everything around is interesting and wonderful, but this is not euphoria, but rather a kind of meditative point.

There are recurring characters in Ariana’s works. They are hypertrophied vivid children’s images that descend from heaven to earth and become humanoid. They know how to light something that burns instantly, and have a habit of balancing on limits. With half-closed eyes, they blissfully accept any life circumstances. Depending on the mood, the intensity of their color varies.

«Growing up, which is surprisingly keeping pace with the current era. I feel like the nascent era is as old as I am. I am guided by an aesthetic perception of the world — and I am only a little interested in the pragmatic one, this is the ideal formula for me.»
