My art experience:
I’m specialized in Japanese art, contemporary art and 20-th century art. My final thesis was on the impact of Japanese art and aesthetics on American and European creative culture and modern expression. I worked as journalist at Pro Arte Foundation for Culture and Arts. I was responsible for conception and realization of the video interviews with Russian and foreign artists for the site of the festival Contemporary art in the traditional museum.
I’m currently studying avant-guard painting, philosophy and photography.
I am sumi-e (japanese ink painting) artist and curator of the sumi-e art exhibitions.

It made my day. Marina guided me to a couple of contemporary galleries, then to the Russian Museum, to see some modernist paintings, and then she left me at the door of the Ermitage (with some useful tips) which also held the Manifesta exhibition,. I had a day full of art, with Marina's kind and (very) knowable guidance. If you like art, go for this generous tour.

The Artist's Tour with Marina was really a nice experience for me. We walked down St. Petersburg's streets for about three hours, visiting many art galleries and the dreamy Mihail Chemiakin's exhibition at the Marble Palace. Marina is a very kind and knowlegeable person, she "designed" a tour according to my main interests and inclinations. We talked a lot about contemporary art scene in Russia and enjoyed St. Petersburg's amazingness.
