Few months ago I’ve decided to turn an old barn in our garden into my studio. After weeks of renovation (mostly made by nice and skillful guy Roman), yesterday was the first day at my working place! I love it so much! This place has everything I like — a lot of space, a huge garden window, a sofa so I can host my creative friends when they come to visit, storage shelves, easel, colors, my computer and cool lights i can adjust.

Recently for the first time me and my friend Nir tried to print on t-shirts at Baalei haMelacha. Five hours to learn all the process from the beginning and to print. It seems long, but it was hardly enough.
these are the t-shirts I made for the whole family:
and me, printing:
some more photos, how was it in between

I like when something that looks like art pops up from unexpected places. Like a mirror effect on my web camera — for days I’m absolutely ensorcelled by it’s accidental symmetry.

See the old porcelain statuette in the middle? I got from my grandma. And she got it from her pupils while being a teacher of Russian literature and language in Minsk. It used to stand in the the buffet, behind the glass, and as a child I was forbidden to play with it. Of course I took it out of the buffet when nobody was around. But, well, it wasn’t so interesting to play with it anyway. Later, I read Gogol’s «Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka» and recognized that scene. Cool book, btw — ukranian fantastic realism :)
Two puppet heads next to it I bought in a puppet-workshop in Burma. It was to heavy to carry around the whole dolls in backpack. The funny bird with long legs and a gramophone next to it I bought on a flea market in Jaffa. And a little bear in the left corner — it’s a Russian Winnie-the-Pooh, yes, Russian Winnie-the-Pooh is black! But this one has also unusual long gray fur. My dad was carrying it around as a talisman. Then gave it to me, when we met after 17 years.

Couple of posts ago there was a sketch for this work.
