Naive Childhood Flashbacks
Naive Childhood Flashbacks is an attempt to capture naive childhood memories of the many times I was visiting my grandparents as a small child. The crooked house is an abstract concept of naive, warm, colorful, absurd and zesty memories from Ivanovo area (Russia) where I was born but never lived. The house proportions are distorted as a metaphor of trying to make sense of the things that are far from perfect yet so dear.
Oil on canvas board.

I came to the realization that I refuse to live and wait until it gets better. Worrying takes away the beauty of the present. This collection of daily painting during COVID-19 quarantine was created as a daily tribute and gratitude to life as a whole.
The proceeds of this collection will go to cover the rent of my studio, which I can't access at the moment, my materials and donations to two charities supporting vulnerable communities during COVID-19 crisis who are missing something important what we all can't take for granted now - having a home :
1) Nochlezhka providing assistance to homeless people in Russia.
2) The Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO) providing welfare for migrant workers in Singapore.
