Born in Egypt half Russian half Egyptian , lived in Egypt until I was 12, and left for my studies to Paris. I retired in 2004 and left for the south of France were I live in a charming artistic village ,La Garde Freinet. Since I am in the south of France, I have devoted myself to painting and have began by very colored painting. After using oil I have decided to paint with acrylic as I didn't like to wait that my painting should dry before I can go ahead. As many artist I was impatient to see what my painting will look like. I have a very large range of paintings, from flowers, to sailing boats, or women of different style , some abstract paintings or contemporary, surrealistic painting , figurative, as you can see the choice is large. One of my client told me once, we dont need to run in several galleries as we have everything we want in your work.That was a great compliment for me. If you have a look to my web site you will see that I have many awards, first of all I am in a permanent collection of an USA Museum,that is a great honor (see details on my web site).Many Russian awards, also on my web site. Being awarded also at the Carrousel du Louvre during an exhibition with a UK gallery,I was awarded with "Le Prix spécial" in 2010 for the painting "La bataille des tetras-lyres" that you can see on the diaporama. My paintings are for sale, some of them on my web site are sold but mainly what I left is for sale.Just ask the price if you are interested.
