I was born and grew up in Moscow, where I currently live. I have interests in many art, science and life areas, but this site is entirely about photography. I’m doing photography for more than 5 years. Artistic nudes were my main interest from the beginning. My melancholic temperament, life experience and inner conflicts defined the meaning of my works. I don’t usually plan every little detail. I try to create an image, a story and a mood that will go well with the model and her inner world. And so the unique beauty of each person I work with is captured. Despite the nudity I actually consider my works as portraits. As for the naked body, it helps translating emotions and also emphasizes the natural beauty of the model.
That being said, I’m ready to apply my knowledge and experience to other related photography areas like fetish or beauty.

I’m also a founder of the photo-community dirtyangels.net, which is generally for the artists like me. So if you’re a skilled photographer, a model or just a fan of the dark beauty, we’ll be happy to see you there!

Artemide

E‘ incredibile come passa il tempo.. senza rendermene conto ho lasciato trascorrere troppi mesi senza pubblicare nuovi lavori. Cercherò di rimediare (sempre se a qualcuno interessi, chiaro..)

Questa piccola  tela (150 x 90 cm) è stato realizzata per un’esposizione avvenuta durante un convegno sul „Made in Italy“ a Beijing, Cina il 6/7 Dicembre.
Come per le altre presentate nel sito, è realizzata a Tempera ed Acrilico su un fondo preparato a pietra pomice.

Crepuscolo

L’allegoria del crepuscolo è un soggetto che mi ha sempre affascinato. Come per tutte le allegorie (figura retorica per cui un concetto viene espresso attraverso delle immagini) i livelli di lettura del dipinto sono molteplici e spesso stabiliti con il cliente in fase progettuale.
Il lavoro è stato effettuato sul soffitto del baldacchino per una residenza privata vicino Campobasso.
Le dimensioni della tavola non sono immense e, essendo la parte superiore di un letto chiuso da tendaggi, la visione della scena è strettamente „vincolata“ dall’essere sdraiati:
L’ultima cosa che si vede prima di dormire, la prima quando ci si sveglia…

East meets West

Dopo molti mesi di assenza, torno finalmente a pubblicare qualche lavoro realizzato in questo lungo periodo intercorso. 
Cominciamo con l’ultimo „arrivato“:
Si è appena concluso la XVIII edizione del „SALON“ (annual gathering of international decorative painters) che si è svolta a Tokyo dal 23 al 26 Maggio. 
Questa manifestazione, che ogni anno richiama un numero sempre più grande tra i migliori artisti e decoratori al mondo, viene ospitata ogni anno in una differente città internazionale. 
Per la prima volta dalla sua fondazione, dopo anni di permanenza tra il vecchio continente e gli Stati Uniti, il  SALON è sbarcato nel lontano Oriente. Questa occasione ha fornito lo spunto per il tema di quest’anno: 
„East meets West“: Sharing. 
Personalmente si tratta della mia quarta partecipazione in questo meraviglioso evento, dopo Bergamo 2009, Versailles 2010, Hamburg 2012. Ogni volta è una gioia immensa e, alla fine della settimana, non puoi fare a meno di aspettare l’anno che verrà per condividere nuovamente gioia e pittura con i colleghi/amici di tutto il mondo. „SALON Tokyo 2013“ è stata un’edizione STREPITOSA, un ricordo che porterò con me a lungo. 
Il pannello espositivo che ho preparato per l’occasione è il mio omaggio alla cultura grafica Giapponese attraverso dei simboli che rimandano alla tradizione decorativa europea ed, in particolare, all’Italia (un po‘ di campanilismo è d’obbligo non credete?). 
Spero che Michelangelo mi perdoni….

… e vissero tutti felici e contenti!

Con l’ultima pennellata a questo dipinto, si conclude anche la lunga serie di allegorie che ho realizzato nel corso degli ultimi mesi. 
Spero vivamente che siano state di vostro gradimento quanto lo sono state per me. 
Dipingere la figura umana, anche se in maniera prettamente decorativa, è un continuo stimolo a migliorare. A differenza dei paesaggi o delle nature morte, dove all’occorrenza si posso „mascherare“ alcune incertezze o punti deboli, con la figura il margine d’errore è minimo. Quando si dipinge un piede o una mano, il rischio „moncherino“ è sempre in agguato e per le espressioni facciali, se è possibile, va ancora peggio!  Chiunque dipinga sa di cosa parlo…
Ora più che mai, guardando all’operato dei grandi Maestri del passato (ma anche tanti bravissimi artisti contemporanei), la mia ammirazione per le loro opere è enorme. 
Ho ancora taaaaanta strada da fare.. per il momento però, me ne vado in vacanza!

6 metri sopra il cielo…

Anche se il titolo può trarre in inganno, ovviamente questo post non ha nulla a che fare con il libro, che peraltro non ho mai letto (e me ne vanto!). E‘ solo un mal riuscito gioco di parole tra la lunghezza della tela ed il soggetto raffigurato (che simpatico umorista eh?).
  

Kuskovo was the summer country house

and estate of the Sheremetev family. Built in the mid-18th century, it was originally situated several miles to the east of Moscow but now is part of the East District of the city. It was one of the first great summer country estates of the Russian nobility, and one of the few near Moscow still preserved. Today the estate is the home of the Russian State Museum of Ceramics, and the park is a favourite place of recreation for Muscovites.

I have always loved photography as art, but i started with drawing and I was also was a model.Later in 2007 I discovered photography as a means to express myself and completely replaced painting. My photographs are not exactly a photographs, my creations are somewhere in between paintings and photography. In my images I use pain as a beauty, erotic as a psychological way of life. I express myself and my intimate inner life. Indeed, the majority of my works are in the water, this of course is not accidental. From many points of view, for me the water is very suitable means to express what I carry in me and recreate my ideas.. It’s really inspiring to me the water is my creation. The creation the life, the power…the water is filled with tremendous energy. It is the winner of pleasure and delight it gives life, but also poses a risk, threat, it can destroy us. I love the transparency  and purity of water light and reflecting and transformations that is suffered in contact with another medium. For me the water is highly erotic element precisely because of the opposites that brings. Water is the one who quenches our  thirst and saves us. Lust for life of each of us, the thirst for love and the eternal struggle and attempt to erase, to dull to heal the pain, sadness, loneliness…

Mira Nedyalkova – I have always loved photography as art, but i started with drawing and I was also was a model. Later in 2007 I discovered photography as a means to express myself and completely replaced painting.The water is my creation.

My photographs are not exactly a photographs,my creations are somewhere in between paintings and photography. In my images I use pain as a beauty, erotic as a psychological way of life. I express myself and my intimate inner life. In my photographs you would find beauty and strong will for life, sorrow and pain, love and eroticism as constant part of our life…

I would love to connect all that feelings. For me that is the only way to know the sweetness to be alive, to know the happiness and become part of the beauty of life.

In my photos the model (character) is not only beautiful, she must brings not only joy but also sadness, she exudes eroticism and coldness, she is filled with joy.. but the pain is forever with her. My model is my main element, but in fact it is almost as if it is not there at all, all there is is my soul and my world. My images do not present the model- her nice shapes or beautiful eyes. The eyes are closed in almost every image, my character is disembodied, her nakedness isleft unseen, forgotten… eroticism is what fascinates the viewer, but not to excite his senses, but to enter his soul, the essence … we sink deep intoyour heart and your mind … to help us to know, to see nearly our fears and hidden desires and to accept them, to accept them in order to enjoy them.

Majority of my works are in the water. From many points of view, for me the water is very suitable means to express what I carry in me and recreate my ideas. First I will saythat from a technical point of view, shooting water brings me great joy. Incontact with light, shadows, shapes and colors the water transforms in an incredible way and the final effect is outstanding and always surprising. It’s really inspiring to me. From the artistic point of view and as a vehicle, the water is my creation. The creation, the life, and the power…the water is filled with tremendous energy. It is the winner of pleasure and delight, it gives life, but also poses a risk, threat, it can destroy us. I love the transparency and purity of water, light and reflecting and transformations that is suffered in contact with another medium. For me, the water is highly erotic element precisely because of the opposites that brings. Water is the one who quenches our thirst and saves us. Lust for life of each of us, the thirst for love and the eternal struggle and attempt to erase, to dull, to heal the pain, sadness, loneliness…

Photography for me is a means to express my deep respect and admiration
for the beauty of the female form, and for women as themselves.
Nature has created a gift, a monument- the female body- which is natural in its beauty and  also absolutely perfect in its curves and shapes.
The significance of such a creation means the inexhaustibility and timelessness of the theme of female nudes in photography
