Andrew Atroshenko is a Russian artist who admires the beauty of New England landscape and how people there protect their environment. But actually he got his biggest influences from his wife and daughter when pursuing his passion in arts. Check out what he wanted to show us in his piece.
As a matter of fact Andrew has stayed for some time in the States where he grew his artistic references and influences. And he is very passionate enough to put all that become his life inspiration in his art work. You can clearly see his passion in his paintings.
As he puts it in his artist statement, “This year in America gave me more as an artist then all eight years of my formal studies in the prestigious Russian academies. I am a descendent of farmers, and I was impressed by the New England’s landscapes, and how a man in America avoids harming its environment. After seeing Royo and Pino at ArtExpo New York 2000, I suddenly realized what direction I want to take my art in. After staying for a year in the United States, I spent two years in Russia perfecting my art.”
