In 2004, after graduation from Ural State Academy of Architecture and Arts in Yekaterinburg, the talented duo started experimenting with several artistic materials (china, fumo, self-fusing plastics) and delivered the first collections of portrait dolls.

Their passion for fashion design soon expressed through the play of various fabrics leading to conceptual collections of 10 to 15 dolls mixing couture design and doll art.

Prior work behind every collection starts from developing the concept, documenting and searching for images, choosing technique and drawing sketches. The doll's gesture, costume design and artistic setting, all go together to maximum effect.

Popovy art dolls have been featured in prestigious industry publications as indicative of the new wave of Russian art-doll creators and displayed at international art salons in Russia, Lithuania and Japan.
