Oleg Osipoff -“The Wall” -oil on canvas (100×120 cm.)

“Was born in 1969 in a family of doctors in Grodno. It was nothing ther unremarkable childhood – school, sports sections, games in a courtyard… But I always would like to decorate with bright paints “grey everyday life” then still Soviet Union, to sate by this set of positive stories the unfair, sometimes spiteful and hopeless atmosphere of society… But at the time I did not realize that it is a desire, and I just draw – colour pencils, water colour paints, ink, sometimes simply ball pen.

A year later after school when I was 18 years old, I was called to serve in the army… It was the hard school of life and has affected to my creativity in the future also. During service in army, when time permitted, I as well developed my skills in art.

After I finished military service, I enrolled a medical institute, but have not finished it. I have decided to study in art academy. My country has gradually changed for the better, opened a lot of new and interesting things. I had the opportunity to visit different countries, get acquainted with different cultures, categories and trends of art… My ideas for creativity transformed and continuously changed . I have researched the history of art, I was attending the exhibitions of famous artists, I was buying albums about paintings and sculptures … After graduating from the Academy of Arts, I have not stopped working on painting and constantly improve my technique, the composition, color sensation.

My paintings is a mirror of subjective perception of the world. Reflexion of the books read by me, films viewed, the theatrical performances, lived and the endured vital moments. Some my works are not entered in frameworks of stereotypic thinking, that pleases , as they force people to think, reflect and argue. I intentionally leave to the spectator the possibility to ” to complete” almost half of my plan in painting, to “release consciousness” and to see something of their own, understandable only to him. I find it necessary to leave some riddle and innuendo rather than present on the canvas everything ready to normal perception.

Alexander Blok said: “Тhe direct duty of the artist – to show and not to prove.” I like this saying

Currently I live and work in Moscow. In the year I paint four six paintings. My works are in private collections in Russia, USA, Israel, France, Germany, Sweden, etc. For all the time I had three solo exhibitions:
