Artist Bio

Sasha, a Master of Fine Arts, lives and works in Vancouver. His passion for Art, remarkable mastery of art techniques, and in-depth knowledge of creative art processes have gained him recognition among the art critics and followers among the colleagues and public.

Sasha has been successfully exhibiting his large-scale artworks on the Vancouver Art Scene since 2008. He has been participating at Culture Crawls since 2011 and Parker Art Salon since 2016.

Drawing on diverse aesthetic strategies and mediums, Sasha has produced a visual language that oscillates freely between personal memories and art history references. Although constantly reinventing himself, several aspects of Sasha’s practice remain consistent: his emphasis on the process, the contra-positioning of the material surface versus the illusory depth, as well as the indulgence in the effects of the material.
