Creative biography OLEG MAYOROV
Passport year and place of birth:
1966, Kuibyshev (Samara).
From an unissued, but far more significant and valid, identity card of a self-aware person:
The year 1976, place – Leningradsky mine, Shmidtovsky district, Magadan region.
The very Far North, the very-very Far North of the Earth, where one has a rare opportunity to be one-on-one with the Universe, and thus with oneself. It was there that I was born into the light of God, accompanied by the first crystal chords of “Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd, under the halo of the lunar rainbow, the malachite radiance of the ionosphere and the brilliance of the diamond crowning the invisible axis of the Planet, the North Star placed there just above the top, where its mysterious glow was apparently reflected, awakening my awareness of myself and the reality around me.
There I started my education in the arts of life, including fine arts and poetry. Later on, in 1983 I tried to learn the first of them professionally with a help of Kuibyshev Art School and in 1989 I tried to study thanks to the teachers of Togliatti Teachers’ Art Department. Now I continue studying with Ms. Reality herself, getting inspiration from Her, taking lessons from Her and dedicating my works to Her.
Without false modesty, I do not classify myself as an artist or a poet, but I aspire to become one. This is what I do, both in Present Continuous and Present Indefinite.
Series The icons of New Age
For a modern person, it is typical to watch icons depicting holy faces of great personalities of the ancient times. In these pictures, I have managed to paint a portrait of an equally great personality, contemporary to our era, with the even more audacious intention of stating that the dignity of these portraits is akin to the meaning of an icon, namely, worship. Worship of the supreme principle of Being - His Motherly Initiation.
Series The Spiritual Traveler
These works have become attempts of the author to define the meaning of his life. Did the author succeed in defining the meaning of his life? - Let art answer this question.

Series Pencils’ box
It is generally accepted that genres such as fantasy, esotericism, religious art are used for attempts to express the ineffable mysteries of the universe... In this series of drawings, the author has made an attempt to capture, say reflect these mysteries in everyday life. To recognise a higher, eternal Being in a mere mortal existence.
