Oleg Lobykin considers himself "a product of globalization," just like so many others in Silicon Valley. Like many in the region, he immigrated to the United States chasing opportunity (his wife had been accepted to Stanford); like many who move here, the pair fell in love with the area and settled down, purchasing a home in East Palo Alto, and starting a family; and, like many who live here, the Russian emigre wrestles every day with big ideas, which he addresses through his life's work.

I have seen Oleg Lobykin's sculptures and they are fun to see. You want to touch them. If you get a chance stop by his Studio in East Palo Alto this weekend to see more of his work. You won't regret it!

Has the Sac Street Gang really been decimated enough to make visiting his Sac Street studio safe?
