Art from around the world and around the corner


Dmitrey Proshkin

Born in 1973, in Ufa, Russia. He received his early art education at Ufa's College of Art from 1988 to 1992, after which he successfully passed the difficult entrance exams for Ufa's Art Institute. Within the walls of the Art Institute he became enthralled with art's prominent masters of landscape such as Claude Monet, Pissaro, Sisley, and Marke. His studies also included the great masters from the Russian school such as Korovin, Shishkin, Savrosov, Vassilev, Levitan,and others. Their works proved to have great influence on the young artist. The elevated tradition of Russian masters became fundamental to him and in it's own way a sort of guide-book through the labyrinth of his agonizing creative search. The result of his nine year extensive study of painting and the art world helped to bring about a young artist with a boundless desire and determination to realize his creative potential and reveal in his paintings, his disposition, feelings, and "entire self ". Dmitriy's work can be found in various private collections in Europe, Russia and the US.
