bio en


Maria Pleshkova (b. 1986) is a multidisciplinary artist working in photography, digital collage and video.
Pleshkova's life and art are inseparably connected. She lives her life through her art, depicting her personal experience in a sincere and honest way.
For Pleshkova, the inner world and the outer world are juxtaposed, and the inner world seems to be more real. In her work, Pleshkova explores the Microcosm, the human universe, and certain moments of the highest intensity of life. She focuses on the Unconscious. Also, for her art is an act of escapism.
Pleshkova's work doesn't appeal to ratio ? on the contrary, it appeals to people's feelings. She creates her own artistic universe and invites people to visit it. Pleshkova's recent projects have been autobiographical, but the autobiography is just an excuse to talk about things which are universal and common to all humankind. 
Pleshkova says, "I make self-portraits because I am so often alone, and because I am the person I know best. Creation is the opposite of death, and each self-portrait is the answer to the question "Am I still alive?" 
Pleshkova's works have been shown in Russia, France, Spain, Italy and Georgia.
Maria Pleshkova is a member of the studio hans lucas since 2016. 
She lives and works in Moscow.
