Who I am
I was born on September 19, 1963 in Uzbekistan, in a Korean family that was deported like other political victims from the Soviet Far East.
Despite the strict Soviet interdiction till Perestroika against learning about native origins, I was interested in other cultures as well as in my own - Korean. That’s why I spent a lot of time studying the principals of oriental Art.
Later in Saint Petersburg (former Leningrad), my efforts to learn about Korean as well as Occidental art, culture and art techniques were supported by my professors, especially in works on this topic, where its own ethnic character is still preserved.
Also my artistic activity has one more facet: martial arts. I have already earned several trophies, but I would like to continue developing this passion of mine.
And for my friends I keep my guitar to accompany the songs of our youth.
