was the clap of a bottle of champagne in the trembling hands of my Russian friend, signaling the beginning of the break-up, but nevertheless he managed to tell me about the artist. Ustinov was born in the South of Russia, in Rostov, a city known for rap, jumps and a local likeness of lobster-crayfish.

a pictorial diploma. It is rumored that Ustinov adheres to the "double artistic strategy", doing both strange media projects and a heart-rending abstract painting. I warmly welcome the abstract experiments of the artist in the country where the name of Kazimir Malevich is inscribed even in the construction of residential complexes!
