I would like to tell you a scary story about a spike. Once upon a time, there was a mosaic artist, who made 30 beautiful eyes with mosaic during self-isolation period. And they were hang on the wall when they were already finished. So the artist shared photographs and stories of every eye with friends and followers on Instagram. Everything was going well and nothing portended misfortune. But once the spike didn’t carry it all and everything fell down on the floor so all eyes were broken. The artist was disappointed and didn’t touch this bunch of pieces for two days. She kept it in a secret so didn’t share her disaster with anyone. But tears of sorrow would never help. So she approached all her friends who were engaged in the restoration of gypsum. And friends gave her good advice how to fix everything. The artist started to work a day by day to fix all 30 eyes. She didn’t start any new art works but only fixed the project “Eyes of Isolation”. So it was about “ Never give up”.

BoRis Moz is a pseudonym, I was born in 1987. In Russia, male names cannot be used for women, but for me these letters are an important abbreviation. Mostly I prefer to work with mosaics, but also I often use acrylics to work with canvases. I make mosaic sculptures and paintings from smalt and marble. In my art you can find eyes that in turn are the characters representing the residents of the metropolis. Their seeking worried eyes are in search for the desired. Three years ago, I met my muse, who captivated me by her eyes, that inspired a new stage of my art, and I was unspeakably glad about that. I accidentally got into the creative industry 8 years ago. One weekend I went to help my friend with mosaics in a workshop. That was the day I realized that if you work in this life, it is only in the creative industry, when your heart is filled with colors, shapes and textures, everything has a completely different meaning. But it is difficult to be a creator, I do not have a special education for this. I had to overcome many obstacles on my way through perseverance. I studied directly in the mosaic workshop and, as needed, I learned the necessary skills for work. It has been two years since I discovered the world of contemporary art and felt closeness and affinity with it. I was born in warm and good-natured Tashkent. It is the capital of the Republic of Uzbekistan. I grew up there and graduated from the institute, studied to be a FEA manager. I always dreamed of visiting Russia, the homeland of my ancestors, and moved here in 2009. To this day I live and work in Moscow.
