A Previous Life

An ongoing series that depicts the artist's life in Moscow, Russia before immigration to the US at seven years old. The age is important as it is old enough to retain vivid memories, yet still young enough to blend into American society, but never fully. This colorful series is based on the artist's collection of family photos, depicting often odd scenes that now seem literally a part of a "previous life".
