This Ukrainian artist lives in Odessa, on the borders of the Black Sea. He studied art at the Odessa State Pedagogical Institute and since 1981 he regularly has expositions and he makes bookillustrations. For instance he illustrated Russian editions of Alice in Wonderland, Oscar Wilde's The Selfish Giant and The Lord of the Rings. Drawings for The Silmarillion have been published in America and England gepubliceerd.
His mock Medieval style is very appealing and his sense of humour is visible in little details in almost all his paintings.
