New York-based printmaker, painter and modern surrealist. Shishkin was born in Moscow in 1977. Not one for dull 'Man wearing hat' titles, Shishkin is as colorful in naming her artwork as she is in painting them: I don't want any problems, none what so ever; Angels fly because they take themselves lightly; Pity is an Agreeable Sentiment, Uplifting Like Military Music; Morning Is To Last No Longer Than Grief .
“Often a motif will keep reappearing, say a circle, and it becomes like an obsessive compulsive thing. [It] isn’t always a conscious decision to work with certain imagery, but more like something you have to get out of your system.”
- Shishkin in an interview with Bunt-Art
