Trofimov at Affordable Art

Trofimov at Affordable Art
Oleg Trofimov, Russia’s most famous and celebrated living artist, was born in 1962 in Krasnoarmeisk, Russia.
His style is “Russian realism” which is a combination of traditional realism and impressionism. Russian artists that had a major influence on him were Korovonin, Turjanskiy, Korjev, Stojarov and Ukin. He cites the western artists Van Gogh and Monet as his true inspiration.
In the 90’s Oleg’s work was purchased by practically all of the major Russian banks. Important government officials including Presidents Vladimir Putin, Dmitri Medvedev, Mikhail Gorbachev and the late Boris Yeltsin hold his work in their private collections.
Many stars of Russian entertainment including actors, producers and singers are among collectors of his art. Svetlana Medvedeva, wife of the current Prime Minister and owner of two prestigious art galleries in Moscow and Bruges has purchased 16 of Oleg’s paintings over the past few years.
Moscow’s world famous Tretyakov Art Gallery & Museum has recently purchased several of Oleg’s paintings to archive alongside other Russian masters of the last three centuries.
The paintings of Oleg Trofimov are now on display at Affordable Art and can be purchased directly from the gallery or by telephone.
