DARKRECONSTRUCTION, Artist Spotlight No. 19


I am an emerging nonbinary queer artist working in acrylic and watercolor paints, creating abstract expressionist paintings, and a graphic designer with over a decade of experience. Born in St. Petersburg and raised in Bensonhurst, I currently live and create art in Woodhaven, NY. My work focuses on the contrast between urban life and nature. I am inspired by concrete walls overgrown by ivy and tree branches, train underpasses covered in graffiti and grass, a strong New York summer rainstorm beating against my window, the decaying Red Hook warehouses, tiny alleys, and the way the air smells on the first few days of September. It is my aim to create paintings that bring a moment of serenity and calm to the viewer.


DARKRECONSTRUCTION is an emerging non-binary queer artist from Queens, NY using abstract expressionism to explore the contrast between nature and urban life.
