Artem was born in 1976, in the city of Minsk, Russia. At the age of 17, Artem and his family moved to the States, making their home in Buffalo, NY. Soon after his arrival, Artem enrolled in the School of Visual Art, in New York City, and was granted a scholarship from the Department of Illustration. He spent a semester in Amsterdam at the Rietvield Academy of Art. Intrigued by the city’s cultural and architectural landscape, he used this inspiration to produce many works of art, including images of a post-apocalyptic city submerged deep under water. Artem graduated from School of Visual Arts in 1999 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art and Illustration. In 2011, he curated first Interactive Art Exhibit at Museum of Russian Art (Jersey City, NJ) where 14 established and emerging artists from U.S.A., Russia and Europe working in multi media were showcased. Over 200 Artem’s works are in private and museum collections including Jewish Museum (Moscow), Third Temple Museum (Jerusalem), Ryazan Fine Art Museum (Russia), Museum of Russian Art (USA), Kolodzei Art Foundation (USA), Robert Rothchild Collection (USA), etc.
Artem creates a new world within each frame. His paintings are depictions of ancient civilizations, philosophy, present society, and also what he envisions for the future. Each picture tells a story; the movement of the story is carried throughout the piece by the movement of the characters. The personality and emotion of these figures is communicated through facial expression and actions. His tales include appearance from dwellers of Babylon, the lost soldiers of Alexander the great, Einstein, samurai warriors, urban legends, time travelers, and scientists of subterranean worlds. When words alone cannot describe what he envisions in his mind, it is his through his artwork that he finds a means of visual language and communication.
