Hello my friend. I`m an art-adviser, curator and guide to the art world. All my life I was close to the nice things... I`ve got an education of art history and the same moment I was working in art galleries. But I`ve stopped it and decided to do my own art projects.So I will be happy to tell you about Russian art, go with you to galleries and, if u interested, will sell you a contemporary art

It was fun and Mariia was friendly. The galleries we went to are all different and Mariia shared some of her perspective on the contemporary art scene in Russia, which I enjoyed. A few suggestions: - I really appreciate you being accommodating to my schedule. However I think you being late for 35 minutes after already pushing the time back by 30min last minute affected my experience from the beginning - given that we are expected to take the bus and it only takes cash, it’ll be good if you tell guest ahead of time, or prepare cash on your side Thank you!

This is an absolute must if you find yourself in or near Saint Petersburg. We went to multiple galleries and saw an extensive range of art at different exhibitions throughout the city. In the age of Google and Yandex, it has become easier to find local experiences on our own, but I promise you, this is not one of them. I would never have been able to do this on my own, and I am so grateful for this experience. I was introduced to new artists and work that I am still processing days later. This was one of my favorite parts of Saint Petersburg. Mariia is truly an expert and active in this field, so I highly recommend trying this out, because it deepened my love for this city, and I'm certain it will deepen yours.

Мария очень старалась погрузить нас в тему. Так как тема современного искусства нам была самим очень интересна, то в процессе общения мы смогли немного продвинуться в вопросе.

Идея этого Впечатления хорошая, даже очень хорошая. Мы встретились с Машей, она дружелюбная и посвятила мне более трёх часов своего времени. Плюсы- посетить маленькие галереи, которые самому пришлось бы поискать. Минусы- мне не хватило структурированной информации просто по теме: общие интересные сведения о современном искусстве, тенденции, интересные факты. Не хватило именно введения в тему. Ну и заранее продумать/узнать какие галереи открыты и где есть выставки.
