Stained Glass "What Would Yeezus Do?"
Highly creative and multi-disciplinary Designer with more than 10 years in product publishing and print design. Spent 3 years in Southern China developing accessories for portable electronics. Being so close to manufacturing facilities allowed me to get first-hand experience in materials and manufacturing technologies of both soft goods and plastic/silicone accessories. Combining this experience with my passion to art I designed a number of sculptures and art installations which I displayed on a different art fairs and festivals around the globe. The most significant of my works so far is a 75ft tall inflatable sculpture, named #Slonik which I presented on Burning Man 2019

Future profession wasn't obvious to me, so I went to study:
09.1999 – 06.2002
This young gentleman does not yet know that he will never work as a lawyer, but at least he has learned to read contracts carefully despite his dyslexia.
09.2002 - 12.2005
Having a law degree is not something I regret because my understanding of the law, particularly in the areas of copyright and various contract relationships, has been beneficial to me on numerous occasions both in my personal life and artistic pursuits.
02.2012 - 04.2012
Web Development and SEO
At that time, my friend and I came up with our own social network and went to study as developers to be able to build it. Now you know this network as Instagram! Kidding. Of course, our startup failed. But I learned something new.

There were times when I had to work at a real job.
Paint Shop Operator
Ford Motor Company, St. Petersburg, Russia
Yes, I know it has nothing to do with art but I was young at the time and my girlfriend and I had just moved to St. Petersburg from a small town, so I jumped at every opportunity. Working in a car factory seemed exciting to me, I was interested in understanding the processes behind the production of such a complex product as a car. Later, this experience was useful to me when I started working as an industrial designer, I better understood the logic and production pipeline.

Creative Director | Co-Founder
MOOW, Yerevan, Armenia
In 2014, while I was working in China designing wearable electronics, including smartwatches and heart rate monitors, I came up with a concept where a person could mine cryptocurrency through physical activity. The mechanics were simple - the watch would track active heart rate metrics and reward tokens based on a set coefficient. Like most ideas, I just recorded it in my notes and put it aside for better times because I am not a programmer and there were no IT specialists in my environment.
In 2022, there was a boom in move-to-earn apps and I remembered my idea and decided to implement it. Firstly, because I was convinced that this was a working mechanism, and secondly, because I saw a lot of advantages in my model over existing projects that simply copied each other's common GPS data tracking mechanics. This meant that such projects would not be in great demand among people who engage in sports in fitness clubs, as well as among residents of cold or, conversely, too hot countries or countries where sharing GPS data is prohibited.
Fortunately, there are a huge number of IT specialists of different levels in Armenia now, we assembled a team and together created the MOOW app, which is currently in closed alpha testing and will be released in the second quarter of 2023.
In MOOW, I oversee the art direction, am responsible for the visual style and identity, and select artists for collaborations, as our app has a very strong art component in addition to sports and finance.
