I've always been fascinated by Russian artists. I think they are a very talented lot and most of them are not known outside of their country until recently. Most of the well-known composers are Russian or from the old USSR. There are also many who are good in arts and in fact, the header of this blog is taken from a wallpaper designed by a Russian. Russian Artist Victor Lysakov is an artist passionate in modern expressionist paintings. His paintings come in a vibrant pallete and is known for its unique composition.

Victor Lysakov is proud to make his American debut and his website showcases his work of art. Victor Lysakov was born in Siberia in 1952 and discovered his talents at a young age. “It was when I was six years old that I realized, for the first time, that the most natural and the most fitting way for me to carry on a conversation with the world was through the visual language" said Victor Lysakov.

Victor Lysakov is not purely an artist as he demonstrated through his academic prowess. He has an MS in Physical Chemistry from the Moscow State Institure of Steel and Alloys and a Ph.D in Technical Sciences from the Lomonosov State Institute of Fine Chemical Technology in Moscow. However, his love for arts brought him back to his craft full-time. He began experimenting first with watercolor, but now paints almost exclusively with oil or acrylic on canvas. Though never classically trained, Lysakov studied Rembrandt’s and Bryullov’s techniques. A self-taught artist, he read books incessantly, and spent hours upon hours in museums. In 1987, he became a founding partner of the first truly independent artists’ union, “Arbatr.” He created history again in 2001 when, for the first time, a graduate student dedicated her entire master’s thesis to a living artist. Lysakov has enjoyed a quick rise in the international art world, and is particularly renowned in Russia and Europe. He has participated in several prestigious exhibitions and auctions in Russia, Germany, France and Italy and was named one of “The Best European Artists” in 1991.

Now, Lysakov is pleased to formally introduce his work to the American public. He has a vast personal collection, but only a select 40 paintings will be immediately available for sale. They range in image size from a humble 14x14 to a majestic 58x50. All are offered at an extremely low edition size of 395 Giclée Canvas Prints and 30 Artist Proofs. Each image is personally hand-signed by the artist himself. Check out his gallery. It's an incredible piece of art!
