Andrew was born in 1965 in Pokrovsk in Russia and was accepted as a gifted child into the Childrens Art School in 1977, graduating with honours in 1981. After further training at the Bryansk Art College, he went to the St Petersburg Academy of Art. After graduation in 1994 he took part in a number of exhibitions in St Petersburg and the St Petersburg Artists Exhibition which was shown in Germany.

 

In 1999 he was invited by a New England art group – Bay Arts, to take part in their exhibition and he spent an entire year in the United States.  During that year he developed a great appreciation for the American landscape and its farming traditions. He came across the work of Pino Daeni and Spanish painter Royo at the Artexpo in New York in 2000, and he realised what direction he wanted to take his art into. His lush oils show the influence of these two artists and have a feeling redolent of the 1950s. He married fellow student Maria in 1992 and together they have a daughter – Alexandra. Like many artists, Andrew has a number of artistic references and influences, but it is his wife and daughter who are his inspiration.

 

He sells successfully across the States and Europe and had two paintings auctioned by Sothebys in 2002 and 2003. We are delighted to be representing Andrew in the UK.
