Artur is a filmmaker who was born and raised in Russia. However, due to his disagreement with the political structure in the country, he made the difficult decision to leave and move to New York in 2010.

Inspired by the works of Spielberg, Kurosawa, and Tarkovsky, Artur is passionate about using film to explore the human experience and to tell stories that matter. His first short film, "Behind the Scenes," showcases his talent as both a writer and director and explores themes of identity and creativity. Since then, Artur has worked on a number of projects, including music videos and short films. Known for his character-driven stories that engage and challenge audiences, Artur is committed to pushing boundaries and taking risks in his work.
