Vladimir Volegov, An Inspiring Current Artist

27 Aug

I just love this Russian painter’s work! I discovered him on YouTube and subscribed immediately, as I love his vibrant paintings, his dexterous techniques of bold brushstrokes and his sensitivity to his subjects. I want to share this talent with you today – just in case you haven’t heard of him! I hope his work evokes you as much as it does me.

Brief Biography

Vladimir Volegov was born in Chabarovsk, Russia. He began painting at the age of three. He later attended the art school Krivoj Rog and the Lvov Polygraphic Institute in the former Soviet Union.

Beginning in 1984 Vladimir began winning entries into International Competitions for poster art.

He moved to Moscow in 1988 to pursue a career in commercial art. Notable Russian publishing houses sought his talents to design posters and CD covers for musical groups. While working with these publishing houses, he continued to work on his paintings and participate in exhibitions.

In 1990 he travelled to Europe where he earned money by painting portraits on the city streets. This experience assisted in perfecting the human form he so deftly creates today in much of his work.

    Thanks for your comment Veronica, it’s always nice to see your face! I agree, I find all his paintings romantic but his children are beautiful – you could cuddle them! He captures the light exquisitely. I just love his work. Glad you liked it too.
