I am a freelance illustrator from Ukraine working on books, magazines, fashion and music illustration.

By implementing the decorative plastics of my flat graphics into 3D and short 3D animations, I create sensual ways of visual disclosure of stories. Mostly using metaphors, high detail, vibrant colors to show the magical side of the theme I'm working with. My favorite form of ideas now lies at the intersection of fairy tales, fashion, everyday life and classic art.

 

Since 2007, I participated as an illustrator and artist in more than 20 group and 3 solo exhibitions. Over the years, I have come a long way in transforming my technique, starting with digital imitation of analogue drawing, going through sculpture, collage, combination of painting and 3D in order to isolate the core of my style - this includes not only smooth lines and high detail, but also a surreal narrative with an exotic atmosphere symbolizing the versatility of various phenomena and entities.

Great artist, I am 100% satisfied with how the cover art turned out. A-1 Service! Will be ordering again!

- Garland Ellis. Down By Law Records. US

High Quality execution, fast turnaround (completed 4 days early), and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended.

- Jalmon. NEVR Zine Editor. US

Fantastical and weird, which is exactly what I was aiming for. I find new things to like about the picture every time I see it, which is a surefire sign that I got my money's worth.

- KingXII. Musician. US

I could not be happier with the final product. Incredible job, and I'll definitely be coming back in the future.
