Graduate of the PRO ARTE Foundation's 2012 School for Young Artists. 

“The School for Young Artists provided a flow of new information and meetings with current major artists, the opportunity to collaborate and communicate with them completely informally. The lectures by such teachers as Yevgeny Kikodze, Antonio Dzhiuza, Viktor Mazin were very useful and still surface in my memory, and they helped me to understand today’s contemporary art.”
