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.
