Mihail Chemiakin, 1943 -

Mihail Chemiakin was born in Moscow in 1943. He studied art at the famous Repin Art Academy. His incredible talent and insatiable hunger for innovativeness led him to challenge the establishment.

In 1971, Chemiakin left the Soviet Union and settled in Paris where his unique imagery was already familiar to European collectors. It was in Paris that he produced his "Carnival at St. Petersberg" and his "Metaphysical Series", which are among his most renowned periods, proving a mastery of color and form.

In 1980, Chemiakin moved to New York where he presently resides and continues his work. Today, his work is featured in all of the major cultural centers of the world.
