Maxim, also known as Veteris and Ape, was born with pencils in his hand. His artistic work began to emerge when he was only two years old. He received his first orders in third grade, painting the school playgrounds for a celebration before the start of the new school year. He did not get any monetary compensation. Instead, the boy received chocolates. He obtained 11 years of artistic academic education:
2010-2013 - School of Arts named after Maria Zankovetskaya, Nizhyn
2013-2017 - State Art Secondary School named after Taras Shevchenko, Faculty of Painting, Kyiv.
2017-2021 - National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture, Faculty of Painting, Kyiv.
All his childhood he lived near the forest, almost according to the laws of the jungle, where his parents raised a love for all living things - beautiful. Loved and loves to climb trees.
One of the founders of the group Veteris Family (inst- vetetis_family).
He collaborates with the first agency NFT- «First NFT Agensy», where he works on large-scale projects in the crypto field, and he has a project there- "monkeys in the concrete jungle" which is directly related to his offline work. Has regular exhibitions and awards.
The works are imbued with ironic insults to society and love of life, because the motto of life is "I'm afraid to live boringly", which can be seen in his works and his way of life.
