I am artist and scientist living in Hallandale BCH, Florida USA. I was born in Former Soviet Union and did PhD at Moscow State University. I learned art and started painting about 40 years ago. Painting has always been a central part of my identity as a human being. I am author of 110 articles and 4 chapters in books. I have a Biographical record in Whos Who in America 64 edition. I mainly paint with oils on canvas and paper. Color plays a major role in my life, because of this I work with brush, using vibrant colors and soft, tonal values to create the overall feel and balance of an art piece. I enjoy painting landscapes, portraits, animals, flowers, etc. All my paintings are for sale.
