Senior Art Director

Hi everyone!

I was born in Tashkent (Uzbekistan) on 25th of June in 1981. It was +34 degrees in the shadow that morning. After a hot night, the doctors were so tired that messed up. Now, i’m officially born on 26th of June.

Some 😂 facts about me:

I was a pioneer 🥁

I was awarded as an old school rocker. Twice:

Gold award at Uzbek Music Festival “Children Of Flowers 2001”

Gold award at Kazakh Music Festival “RockSteam 2002”

I’ve got useless experience at cinema production. in the middle of 90’s, I worked as a Production Designer Assistant at the “UzbekFilm” national cinema studio. After 4 years I learnt how to:

make uzbek historical national carpets

create a tree

make snow in the middle of summer

draw some revolutionary signs

After that I started to study concepting.
Here is my first ambitious concept — The Union of Mobile Migrant Workers' Detachments:

 That’s it!
I hope you enjoyed : )
