Artist Statement

Born in Russia in 1972, Michael has called Montreal his home since 2011. From his studio there, his artworks keep adding to the beauty and value of both public and private collections around the world. He has taken part in 16 personal and 80 group exhibitions around the globe, receiving multiple awards. Joy and reverence are evident in everything he produces, perhaps especially in the deep play of light and shadow. He experiments continuously, challenging himself with a wide range of styles and techniques. “Every day,” he says, “I look, I hear, I feel my immediate environment. When painting, I relive these sensations. And I believe that if we pay close attention, each object and every moment contains the Universe within it.”

Michael conducts multiple workshops around the world as well as private lessons in his own Montreal studio. Recently, he represented Canada at watercolor festivals in Hong Kong, Slovenia, India, Italy, France, Costa Rica, Mexico, Hungary, and Portugal.
