A Genius in the Making...


The indifferent iron skies of Donetsk, Ukraine are more likely to produce championship boxers than fine artists, but Andrei Protsouk can take something from the reference.

Knockout

“They both require intense dedication and great strength. In boxing, a knockout can be a thing of beauty, and so is the feeling of having made a great painting,” Andrei says.

Walking and Talking

With his wife and son, he moved to the United States in 1994 where he was able to meld the discipline and training of the great Russian academies with the wild freedom of expression infusing American culture. Andrei found America strange, but welcoming. A question often asked of Russian √©migr√© artists is how their work was changed by moving to their adopted country.

“It was like surfing....like riding the waves of the post-glasnost era. I wasn't expecting such a warm welcome!" says Andrei.
