I am a self-taught artist and graphic designer, with roots in street & board culture. I used to attend Medical Academy when my passion for visual arts overfilled me with awareness in my ability to enter the world of illustration, arts & design. It was a hard and long way (and i am still on the run) to work out skills, to learn the basics, to meet the classics, to learn the ways of self-expression, to explore the science and to feel the inspiration. In the 2007 I have started my freelancing as Naoba2Artworks, took part in several big board design projects in Russia, designed numerous album covers, posters, t-shirts and stickers for musicians, kiteboarding companies and different local advertising agencies. Now I am getting deep in magazine art-direction, calligraphy and typography studies, expanding the boundaries of sense and knowledge. I am constantly looking for new challenges and opportunities to enrich my experience, to communicate with people through my designs and art pieces.
