Lives and works in Minsk , where he moves after going to college.
He studies at the Republican College of Arts named after Akhremchik . I got into the workshop of Elena Akhramovich, who, according to the artist's memoirs, greatly influenced creativity, showing the strategies of the game and a free but disciplined attitude to art.
He continued to receive art education at the Belarusian State Academy of Arts at the Department of Graphics. At this time, he became disillusioned with the education system and official Belarusian art and frantically searched for himself in other disciplines: design and scenography. Begins to actively cooperate with musicians and theatergoers.
At Dom Kino, he helps Yuriy Urso organize a cinephiles club and together creates a huge video library of classic and avant-garde cinema. It is through the study of cinema that he turns to contemporary art. For two years, using the Internet, he has been studying contemporary art and collecting a digital archive of world art history with great attention to the latest art. The film archive and the digital collection of contemporary art showed the artist's interest in the total systematization of information.
The knowledge gained about contemporary art influenced the artist's decision to pursue art and leave the Academy of Arts. The artist took the documents two months before receiving the diploma.
