Artist, Painter, Craftsman
Slava lives in Omsk, Russia. That is Siberia. That is a pretty rough surrounding that demands lots of mental stamina in many respects.
In his youth he worked in a ceramic workshop and in parallel studied at an art school. All this allowed him to do a small plastic, (direction in sculpture) and participate as an artist in art exhibitions of his native city, Omsk.
Later, combining the experience in the ceramics workshop and the ability to sew allowed him to work in the direction of designer plush dolls. Despite him being an amateur artist, he is a true enthusiast and has still been able to find his direction in this unique area or dollmaking.
Tallinn Bearty is truly happy to bring you the World Premiere of The Leather Bear Dolls exhibition as all the works are exhibited for the first time.
