Kirill Сhasovskih

Born on March 24, 1970 in Orenburg, Russia. The family often moved, so I had a chance to live and study in different cities of Russia – Vladivostok, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Crimea. 

In 1988-1990 served in the Soviet Army. After returning home, I worked in an archaeological expedition. In 1991,  I've moved to the Crimea. There I entered to study the Simferopol University, the Faculty of History. In the same year, the Soviet Union collapsed and I, without moving anywhere, found myself in another country -Ukraine.

In the Crimea, I joined the police, passed all the steps from a patrol officer, to the head of the criminal investigation department, a major. Retired since 2008.

I started drawing as a child, but I didn't study anywhere. I draw intuitively. I believe that the artist's task is much broader than just depicting the existing World. Since the Paleolithic period, artists have only been engaged in changing the flow of time, correcting reality or, if possible, creating a new one. In essence, the artist is a conductor between the worlds that exist, the former and those that have not yet been created. 

The drawing is a kind of microchip that allows the viewer to connect to the vision and feelings of the conductor. Therefore, in some cases, drawing is not entertainment, not a way to earn money, but the duty and personal responsibility of the author for when, whom, how and where he will lead. 

In 2009. the first exhibition was held in Moscow. Next year in Yalta, Crimea. In 2013, I went to Germany with his paintings. 

In the winter of 2014 a neo-Nazi coup d'etat took place in Kiev and nationalists seized power, who unleashed a civil war. I put down my pencil and took a direct part in the return of the Crimea to Russia. 

In June-July 2014, I volunteered to fight against the Ukrainian occupiers for the independence of the Donetsk People's Republic. Then, until 2020, he lived and worked in Luhansk, Donbass. There was a lot of other work at that time, so I almost didn't draw. 

Member of the Union of Writers of the Luhansk People's Republic. Poems and short stories were included in a number of collections and magazines published in 2016-2019. 
Now I live in Moscow. Life experience allows us to state quite definitely that death is not terrible. We will live forever. 
Art is not eternal. The body is not eternal. The human soul lives and develops forever. Art is a magic pill that strengthens the soul. 
An artist is a doctor of the human soul. But the artist is also a human. A lot depends on what kind of medicine the artist gives to other people. It can be both a poison and an antidote. But it can also be a magic pill that will allow you to spread your wings and fly,
