Untitled


Untitled

This piece is one of my latest. I have a sketch book and I put it to use!! it has a psychedelic feel to it and I am proud of making this. I never used to draw because I didn’t know how. And now that I try, I like to know that I can actually accomplish something that I try to do.

The most times I have seen an artist name his pieces Untitled, was Christopher Wool. His exhibit was shown in the Guggenheim Museum, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan! Even if he is not there anymore, he was a great artist in the 80’s. There’s nothing like seeing his work in person, but he made all of his work in a time where art was being criticized on how there is nothing left to do. Minimalism, Impressionism, POP art, abstract art… has all been done already. He took that and embraced it and created something entirely new, that to me, just showed pure emotion.

Lioness


Lioness

This I photoshopped a while ago. I took the picture of the girl on the beach in Brooklyn, NY. I took the sky and the lion’s head from the internet, and I added to the photo. This was my first surreal like photo that I had edited about a year ago, maybe less. It is one of my favorite pieces.

Once Upon A Time


Oh such a clever title, no? I haven’t been here in 4 years. The years have come and gone like everything else in life. I read some of my stuff and yes some of it was really stupid but I had some good points, and some of my opinions really have not changed one bit. Like I still love fall. As for my photography, I have learned a lot … all the different types and styles (as I used to put it). And I went further with it, I learned a lot about photoshop, and art. I started to sketch things and use spray paint for some of my pieces. I create characters. I wish I had a model to make all my ideas come alive. This one time.. once upon a time I had this one idea. Now all I need is someone that isn’t scared of the public eye and is open to everything. So I wanna get some material, very long long material and get a girl and put her on a big tree. And then wrap that long material around her and some with the tree, and it would be so beautiful. SOOOOO nice and pretty and my idea would come alive. See, I don’t have many accomplishments, except for my creations. I take pride in them, and a couple of years from now, I will look at those creations and see how much I have learned and created since now to that day in the future. 

I like the past. Who knows what I was writing about back in 2010 when I was 14, and why I was writing them. NOW!! I could care less about what the hell lady gaga does on her spare time..  i still hate her though, no matter what. That is one thing that didn’t change. 

Instead of accomplishments, I learned a lot about myself. I learned that I love to learn!!! haha and that I wanna know more and more and do more and more for the rest of my life.. in sickness and in health. I want to watch all the great movies of our time and of … well I wanna watch the great movies since before talkies. I will find the time. I learned that I want to do something with my life. I learned that I don’t really get angry at things because.. well what’s the point of wasting my time with anger? I know this girl and she gets angry a lot, she’s a bit younger than me and I hope she has bigger things to worry about soon. Or maybe she has a lot of things to worry about and getting angry at things is just an easy way to be distracted. I learned that I am understanding of most people, because for some reason, they are the way they are due to their own past and I can’t really do anything about it except for accepting who they are and understanding why they act the way they do. Then I learned that I like being alone sometimes because I can do my own thing.

I can’t wait to have a successful business, and go to college and meet people with the same artsy interests as me and make friends, and not be alone anymore. I mean, I am a people person. Being a loner is cool sometimes, but its also nice to share interests with people and learn things from those other people. Yes, books and movies can teach us a lot, but nothing is more raw than learning from the real world and what the real world has to offer us. Image

This is a collage I did for FIT, and I will use it again this year, to be honest. Because it’s fucking brilliant and I am damn proud of this hand made collage of my self. 

long time no speak


The reason i haven’t been here in a while is because I had nothing to say. But now I do, I think a lot and the reason I probably think a lot about a lot of things is because i smoke. The thing is, maybe i don’t see it but I think smoking has effected my life a lot, besides the fact that it can cause cancer and has like a million chemicals in it which mostly can cause death, right? But, everything can make u die, mostly everything. I think when i smoke.
My parents know so that doesn’t matter, but I don’t talk to my mother because I basically don’t trust her to make the story short. I mean the other things that change are like my friends, I am friends with the same people but I made some new friends. It’s all messed up, the people I used to not hang out with before, i hang out with more, and the close friends i used to have and be close to… the friendship kind of died out. The thing is that there’s this one girl, that seemed like it was on the path for us to becoming really close because us four girls were like the girls in sex and the city, it was basically the goal to become like them, well at least to me. But then me and (lets call her Bobbette) Bobbette became really close and the other two became really close, to it was like couples separating. Then when i started smoking, the girl looked at me different which got me really mad.
It wasn’t just us 4, it was a lot of us. We all used to have so many little things with the group of friends, like we were trying to be something we weren’t. First we were skins, and then we were the illest dorks and then the girls were like sex and the city or friends. But why, why do we have to be that, and if you DO want to be like them you have to go all the way with it, or else just be like yourselves. We just liked the idea. There’s something there to depend on, someone, more than just one person, a lot of people to depend on. It’s more than having a best friend or a boyfriend. It’s more than one. The thing is after a while you begin to question who likes who most or who to really trust and don’t want a disappointment.
I hate disappointments, that’s why i don’t like to trust or to have hope. Fuck it. What is the point of caring? Most of things in our lives disappear eventually and if they don’t, you never know which ones will stay forever.

I sound like I’ve been through everything, don’t I? Well i haven’t. Not yet anyway.

Fashions night out NYC


Fashions night out in NYC was all over NYC. Some things were in Soho, 5th avenue, the meat packing district, Lexington ave. (where Bloomingdales is) and more places. The 2 main places were Soho and 5th avenue. Soho would be more bohemian, where people would go for free drinks and shop until 9pm, Soho is a place that is awesome. 5th avenue is more upscale, more celebrities would be there and more people would be there, the large stores and name brands are in 5th avenue, for fashions night out you would go there to see the people not shop till you drop. I went to Soho. I went there because I felt like it would more fun for me. It was crowded and it was an area I would know a little better. It’s just a place I would be happy in and would go on any day. But, fashions night out for whole city is more exciting than any other day. In Soho, you could get the chance to see the BIG PEOPLE, and see men in boxes (which did happen), and see people that are dressed so nice and look like models. So, that was my night. An, exciting-crowded-wondering-around-night in the city.

P.S. the men in the boxes were plastic boxes and they were “KEN dolls” (they looked like dolls). Kind of creepy, but there was a whole lot of crowd there. Also, if I was older it would be more fun to go to different places for free alcoholic beverages. 🙂

Cafe Glechik review


So, today I went to this cafe on Sheapshead Bay (that’s in Brooklyn,NY). It’s a West Ukrainian themed place. I went there in the morning time (like noon). So, therefore I got breakfast. What I got could be served as lunch also because it has meat, it’s not sweet. This place doesn’t have “breakfast” “lunch” and “dinner” times. So, the waiter can’t be like “sorry ma’am, breakfast was over 4 minutes ago”. …So, I am going to show you some decorations (which I think are really good). The decorations give a meaning to the place. I love the theme and I like the food. I am used to the food somewhat. It is a little different from Russian food (I am Russian), so I am somewhat familiar with the food. Also, another fact is that the dialect from Western Ukraine is different (so my mother says, she says that she couldn’t understand ANYTHING they are saying (she’s Russian) comparison to other parts of Ukraine). From the look of the place, it looks like a village, not very city-like.
You will see it in the pictures I took. I don’t like the pictures that much because I didn’t feel comfortable to stand up and take the photos that I want.

Little things that put the whole place together
