At the age of eight years old, Arty's grandmother insisted that he should go to music school, which he successfully completed at fourteen years old. After that he seriously considered applying for a music college, but eventually decided against it, because the chance to become a professional pianist was really small and because he stopped enjoying playing the instrument. Instead he learned to use an FL Studio sequencer. His love for video games and electronics led to his liking towards production equipment. Eventually he began to become inspired by artists like The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers and The Crystal Method. After graduating from the Saratov State University with a degree in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, Arty decided to seriously engage in electronic music.
Arty released his first production, Inside of Me / Flip Flop with Misha Kitone. His next EP, Vanilla Sky appeared on the label Enhanced Music and brought him to the attention of many worldwide known DJs. The Enhanced Progressive label was the first to sign Arty as an artist. His single "Bliss" appeared on track listing of A State of Trance with Armin van Buuren in late 2009 and his breakthrough came later that year when Above & Beyond signed him to Anjunabeats. They featured his singles "Rush" and "The Wonder" in their club sets and on their radio show Trance Around the World. Following that, Arty released Trio alongside Matisse & Sadko on Axwell's Axtone label in 2011.
Arty also released music under his alias known as Alpha 9 in 2009 and 2010. He released two tracks entitled Bliss and Come Home on Ferry Corsten's label, Flashover Recordings.
