Jessi Jones: Tell us a little bit about yourself and what it was like growing up in Moscow.
Lana Jolie Carlson: My Father was an engineer and we traveled quite a bit throughout my childhood. He came from a very poor family and worked very hard to succeed in business to provide us with a beautiful life. Eventually we moved to Saint-Petersburg where I studied many things, including: theatre, ballet, fashion and eventually earned my degree in music. I also loved making clothing so while I played in several musical groups I also made clothing for boutiques and my band mates. After touring for a few years throughout Europe, I developed a love for Paris and realized my calling was in the art world. I packed up my things and chased my crazy dream. There I attended the University of Paris - Sorbonne where I studied Art, Cultural History and Business Management. Years later I went back to Russia and saw that Moscow had great opportunities and a large contemporary art scene. I currently own and manage two businesses, one in Moscow and the other in Paris.

LOVE artwork at artist MYK's studio
I'm leaning on a sculpture of August Rodin "The thinker" It's about 6:30 am! We just opened our exhibition and took that huge sculpture for one day to another part of the city because of Economic Forum. They asked to organize a private exposition for the Russian President and his friends. We woke up at 5 am, came with a truck to the museum, and literally stole our own sculptures and brought them to Economic Forum space.
In the city center of Moscow. We gifted the city a mini statue of the sculpture.
This is my art studio in Moscow.
One of my favorite places.
