One of the hallmarks of an artist is the variety of experiences. During his studies, Andrey managed to work in different areas from interior painting to carpentry, props, decorations, from 3d milling to icon painting and much more.
Such work experience gave a wide outlook, possession of techniques and materials. Having studied the classical drawing techniques, in the third year of the institute, the artist chose the workshop of Aidan Salakhova, which turned his attitude towards art upside down. Aidan opened for him the world of “other” art — where thought and Idea are primary.
The artist was fascinated by the 3D world. He assembled a homemade CNC router and 3D printer, "now I actively continue to master 3D editors. I use these skills in their work. In his art, the artist uses the achievements of modern technologies, without losing thought and aesthetic beauty."
The main theme of Andrei Shkarin's work is the search for answers to the question "who am I?", An invitation to the viewer to think, to look for answers, to find their own images. After all, self-awareness is not a primordial given inherent in man, but a product of development.
