Can you tell us about your art journey?
Barbsie: I have been interested in arts since childhood, and it was always my favourite activity. However my first education was in Chemistry and after graduation I was travelling a lot and painting was always with me. After 8 month of working on my first series collection of paintings and applying to galleries in Moscow, I received a number of submissions and several private exhibitions. Then I happened to work as an art director in the Advertising Industry where I learned and practiced my graphic designer skills and creativity. However I decided that to fulfill my artistic spirit I wanted to devote my life entirely to art, quit the job, and took a life changing decision to move to London to study and pursue my art career. Studied at Central Saint Martins, I developed my own bright and unique recognizable style. After that I had 16 exhibitions in London (Aria Art Gallery, Moxie Gallery, J/M Gallery, Red Elephant Gallery, Mortons Private Club, The Court Private Club, Opium, Mandrake Hotel, Blakes Hotel, etc)
