These are the roofs of my youth—Leningrad, USSR. The city was always very rainy and grey, only occasionally the sun would come out and tickle us with warmth. Deep transparent shadows and bright opaque light attracted me to this day, and therefore I was drawn to these roofs that appeared much more colorful in the sun and unusual to the eye. The relief of Old Leningrad’s roofs with chimneys and antennas is my love and they are beautifully juxtaposed against many cathedrals and bridges that the city boasts… I can almost smell the air and feel the afternoon light, brings back so many nostalgic memories of cracked paint on the buildings, sounds of the tram in the early morning hours from my grandparents’ apartment, as well as the apartment building’s enclosed yards full of children’ voices… All of the beautiful colors and architecture of Leningrad inspired me and shaped my artistic vision for many years to come…
