Russian painter Vladimir Volegov is famous for his figurative paintings with his dramatic use of color and texture he creates a portrait-like treatment of the female form, captured in a frozen, yet living moment, with the surrounding bursts of color and scenery.
Born on December 19, 1957 in Khabarovsk, Russia, Vladimir began painting at the age of three and his talent would be noted repeatedly throughout his adolescence.
Vladimir graduated from Lvov Polygraphic Institute. In 1984 he began participating in art exhibitions, where he got awards. In 1988 he moved to Moscow, studied the art of painting and worked in commercial art.
In 1990, Vladimir decided to commit himself entirely to true art, and left the world of commercial art behind him, to travel around Europe making a living as a street artist by painting portraits of travelers. He painted his way through Spain, Germany, and Austria, ever perfecting the striking techniques that he uses today.
He creates wonderful expressive pictures of young women with kids, books, flowers, and cats. All his artwork is full of tenderness and infinite sensitivity.
He is a maestro who play with brushes and knives on just a smooth canvas.
