Maria Pleshkova (Moscow, Russia) is a multidisciplinary artist working in photography, video, performance, and text.
Pleshkova’s life and art are inseparably connected. She lives her life through her art, making intimate and self-revealing projects. Pleshkova’s projects are always autobiographical, but the autobiography is just an excuse to talk about things that are universal and common to all humankind.
Pleshkova graduated from the Law Faculty of Moscow State University, but her career in law wasn’t long because of her passion for art. Later, she studied Photojournalism at Moscow State University and Short film production at School of Visual Arts (Moscow). Also, she attended the Eddie Adams Workshop (USA) and the International Summer School of Photography (Latvia).
