My illusration for book "Semiosphere: in the labyrinth of signs and forms" , 2009

One project changes the another. The same happened after «Home exhibition». I met outstanding girls from neighbor studio – organizers of the art union «Ouick Pics» (quick pictures). The most well-known action of this artists-group – is online-drawing. In coffee-room «Books and Coffee» get together about 20 artists, poets, musician and audience. One by one artists sit down at the table, they have 5 minutes for creating a few pictures. The process of the drawing shoots a video and this is shown on the screen. Creation of art works can be accompanied by poets or musicians. I was succeeded to take a part in this action.The situation when your drawing is observes by one hundred of people was interesting, but at first a little bit unused. Together with young artists there were more experienced and older representatives, for example painter Vladimir Zagorov, graphic artist Vasily Bertels.

My artist-friend Eugene Poznyakov invited me to take part in exhibition in his studio. Theme was «Transport». About 20 art works were presented in two rooms of studio. Everything was very comfortable, home exhibition for friends. There were a few artists and I. I created triptych «Three stations» (on the photo). Three main periods of person’s life (birth, wedding and death) were shown through untypical situation – metro-car. Eugene Poznyakov – is interesting artist, successfully participates in exhibitions, draws graphic and painting. Now, he and some of his friends are going to open gallery in Saint-Petersburg.

And this is my business card. Design by Nikita Timoshenko. Thank you, Man!

In February 2009 I won scholarship in design school «Art-future». Generally studies there paid, but I receive a free place. This school exists just for five years, but it is to represent Russia in Milan's exhibition "iSaloni" this spring! There, by the way, will go my groupmate and friend Elvira Ziyangirova with her project. In this design school are three faculties – fashion-design, publicity-design and interior-design. I study the last one. Beside with profile disciplines I have painting. Lecturer is a remarkable artist – Vladimir Mikhailovich Smirnov. He calls himself grandson of Malevich and Filonov. He studied art by Vladimir Sterligov (student of Malevich) and Tatyana Glebova (student of Filonov). Filonov is one of my favorite artists, especially after reading his memoirs!
And this is my art work in entrance examination: theme «The golden strongroom» (collage).

9.11.2008–30.11.2008 – personal exhibition of graphics in Zoom-Gallery.

«These miniature graphics and small collages were created by a twenty-year-old-artist. He is going to graduate The faculty of philology and arts of «The Big» (Saint-Petersburg State) University in a specialty «Decorative and Applied Arts». The more amazing seems the matter and stylistics of his works. All, that’s taking place in Yaroslav Misonzhnikov’s wee, but detailed pictures, happens between people and, at first, is quite unlike the DAA’s usual embellishment and, secondly, shows a sudden mature, even guess extramature sophistication in a graphics tradition.
People watching television, growing beard, receiving messages, dragging sheeps, kids and suitcases and forcedly embarking some of every type. Biblical cues penetrate into the image’s space with inevitability of context advertisment – now a ram turns into a lamb, now a dressed-in-red-wife seems Rahil or Sarra. A man in metro, as Itshak, just has buoght primogeniture and everything following for a mess of pottage, becoming deep in universal thought aggainst the background of as if casual significant symbols. Quasi a logo of any cellular operator suddenly turns into the destiny-omen.
Yaroslav Misonzhnikov definitely enlightened about Shagal, Matiss and Picasso, but in his art-blood is more likely stirred in “leningrad” graphicists, especially Vladimir Lebedev with his cheeky ice-creamers and citizens-snowdrifts. And even his sketches for the installation he made as a participant in the youth exhibition “Homo Arcticus” on museum-icebreaker “Krassin” carry us back to the passeist’s lithography of Anna Ostroumova-Lebedeva.
