“I like to study. I like to create. If the goal is creative self-realization, then the main thing is just to act.”
Lena Gamova was born in the south of the USSR on May 27, 1987. Her childhood was full of travels in Russia and Ukraine. Her family stayed in Dushanbe, Kiev, Belgorod and the Murmansk region. Ultimately, in mid-2001, Lena moved to St. Petersburg, where she graduated from high school with honors in 2005 and entered ITMO University as a computer engineer.
Feeling good with my hometown
Over time, she became interested in painting and started studying the theory and history of art. Currently she is studying at the Synergy University as a specialist in art history. She continues to paint in oil, acrylics and tempera.

Her creativity was first noticed by the curators of the Loft PROJECT-FLOORS gallery in October 2019. She is a self-taught artist under the guidance of Alla Khan, the managing director of the store on Vasilievsky Island (ART-CITY). In 2019 she took part in the personal exhibition, Loft-Project-Floor’s "City in a Dance". She was the young St. Petersburg artist and the creator of the series. In November 2021, she took part in the group exhibition in Boomer Gallery at London.
“Having no art education does not prevent you from developing your skills on your own.”
Previously, Lena was known under the surname Kuts, but then decided to bring back to life the surname of her beloved grandfather Lev Gamow (a geophysicist who at one time was fond of creative photography, from where Elena also developed a craving for creativity).
“I gained confidence and inspiration to extrapolate my creative path, which continues to delight my audience.”
