Art on the Streets


Art on the Streets. Walks in Almetyevsk is a guidebook for kids. Based on local Tales of Golden Apples, a long-term development project enhancing public spaces and local communities in the city of Almetyevsk, Republic of Tatarstan.

The book tells about public art and explains the main concepts of street art a funny and accessible way. I worked on illustrations, characters, short comics and drew portraits of artists. 

The Book initiated and supported by TATNEFT and Street Art Research Institute.

Having a background in architecture,
I chose to follow my childhood love for drawing.
Since then I’ve illustrated 11 books, Shortlisted The Unpublished Picturebook Showcase 4 (2022) by dPictus, won Hiii Illustration Awards 2020, Carpetvista 2019 and was shortlisted at WIA 2019.

Alongside with supporting female communities one of my main professional interests is investing in further development of local Tatar culture and language.
As an art teacher I’m interested in projects encouraging curiosity and creative thinking in kids.
