Being a native of St. Petersburg, it is impossible not to be involved in art. Art is everywhere here. Art for me is emotions, fantasies, craftsmanship. From childhood I was amazed by sculptures with male figures, made according to the canons of beauty of the ancient era.

One of the notable and well-known cultural values of St. Petersburg are the statues of horse tamers, created by the Russian sculptor Pyotr Klodt for the Anichkov bridge across the Fontanka River in the city center and ten figures of Atlanteans – giants, sculptor Alexander Terebenev, made of granite and decorating the porch on the southern facade of the Hermitage. Welcome to St. Petersburg!
