ABOUT ME

My name is Eugenia Shchukina. 
I was born in Smolensk in 1989 (31 yo).
I live and work in Moscow, Russia.

Graduated from Smolensk State University with a degree in Fine Art. Member of National Pastel Society. Participant of many international contests, expositions, street art and graffiti festivals. Two-time prizewinner of American Art Awards. 

I’m experimenting with different techniques in realism and pop-surrealism styles. The most brilliant arts have been done with dry pastel on paper. Many of them are located in private collections around Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Germany and USA.

 

STATEMENT

Research of internal instability and plasticity of the human psyche is the main foundation of my art.
I’m interested in the question of decreasing fears and fictions through their analyze, in whole perception of different sides personality through symbolism and combination of modern artistic techniques.
Most of my art have a trend of the female perspective and consciousness of Western culture, because it's so close to my origin.

Moths in my works are illusions, fears, complexes.
Fragile, fickle, rapidly disappearing, is invisible.
My works are little stories about relationships with fiction, doubt, and ideas in our heads. We can be friends with them, be in harmony, fight or ignore them, but they are always with us! Even if just nobody notices.
