Education: Art School named after A.P. Bogolyubov, Moscow State Academic Art Institute named after V.I. Surikov (diploma "with honors", silver and gold medals of the Russian Academy of Arts for a series of paintings).
Member of the Board of the TSHR, head of creative workshops at the TSHR and RAH in the framework of the implementation of exhibition projects "Egocentria" (Moscow, 2015, Center for Contemporary Art "Winzavod"), "June 22" (Bratislava, Moscow, Yaroslavl, 2016-2017), "Time is waiting" (Pkov, Saratov, Moscow August-November 2017), "Beauty" (Moscow, Saratov, Novosibirsk, 2018-2019) curator and participant of these projects.
In his work, Slava strives to combine modernist, conditionally academic, artistic practices, iconographic historical images and memes with modern plastic searches, which often takes on the features of kitsch and camp.
In the paintings, we can notice that the author is interested in the work of American illustrators of the 20s of the 20th century. Such stylistic entourage saturates the works with polysyllabic narratives.
Working with the video, Slava develops the theme of self-reproducing cyclical rituals (sacred versus profane) immersed in the spaces of baroque aesthetics.
