Sasha Rayevskiy

Born off the coast of the Black Sea in Novorossiysk, Russia in 1989. Immigrated to the United States with my family in 1996 to Jonesboro, Arkansas. In 2013 moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas to further pursue my Art Career.

Art has always been a part of my life, for as long as I can remember. No formal training, only through self experimentation. My philosophy spurs from my love for music, cars and anime. “Bubbles and Babes” is how I generalize my art style. I paint women because I think everything about them is incredible and that is how I am able to portray beauty and free form fluidity. The Bubbles are my way of expressing over the top emotion. I approach art the same way as playing music. I break down techniques and structures down to the core and adapt them to my personal style. I’ve always been drawn to large scale art and the whole philosophy of graffiti. Through those interests I learned to use spray paint, which has become my preferred medium. It enables me to work as fast as my brain wants to.

My main goal for my art is to incite some sort of emotion in the viewer and for them to find meaning in my works. I usually don’t have a predetermined meaning for most of my works, I just paint whatever I’m feeling or inspired by at the time and let my style and techniques take over.
