Morning in the foothills of Elbrus, the Caucasus (2021)
“The mountains are calling, and I must go.” John Muir perfectly sums up our feelings about these majestic natural wonders. Mountains have always been a source of awe and beauty, and sometimes we don't have the words to capture how much we admire them, how much exhilarating it is to look at mountains...
For our money, nothing beats the feeling of reaching the summit of a mountain and looking down on the world below. But during those times when you’re stuck at home instead of exploring a beautiful blue peak, sink into and explore a painting on your wall
to transport yourself to your own mental mountaintop and your comfort zone of Nature's pricine beauty, crystal clear air of boundless skies and snowy peaks
Born in 1943 in Alma-Ata, USSR. Graduated from Odessa College of Arts "Grekovka". Started to exhibit while studying at the college. It was followed by numerous local, nationwide, All-Soviet Union and international exhibitions. Member of the Union of Artists of the USSR since 1986. Living and working in the UK since 1998. Preferred media - oil on canvas. Preferred genre - figurative art. It demands knowledge of the whole spectre of genres - portraits, landscapes, still-life, - only then your fantasy is not restricted by any inner barriers. I worked in graphics, ceramics, murals and as a theatrical designer. My paintings are in the private collections in dozens of countries of the World, from Japan and Australia to Europe and both coasts of the USA, including two portraits at the collection of the Royal Geographical Society, London.
