I was born on January 5th, 1959 in Baku (Azerbaijan). As far as I can remember I started to draw about the same time. I took part in numerous studios and clubs and graduated Art School named after Azim-zade in Baku. Then there was an army service. Two years. Even during that times I managed to draw though it was quite difficult.
In 1982 I moved to St.Petersburg, got a job and started to prepare for an Art Institute (University level professional Art School). I was admitted among the best to Repin's Academy of Arts in 1983 with major in Fine Arts. I joined a class of famous artist Prof. A.A.Mylnikov during the second year. I graduated from the Academy in 1989. The same year I was invited to join a creative studio of Russian Academy of Arts (graduate school in visual arts), which I successfully finished in 1992.
While I was a student I performed various projects in monumental mosaic and stained glass in different Russian cities. From 1990 I'm a member of the Union of Artists. I have participated in numerous exhibitions in Russia and abroad (e.g. New-York, 1989) including yearly exhibition of Art Teachers. Since 1995 I teach painting, drawing and composition in Repin's Academy of Arts.
