Artist - Valentin Massow

Most artists are into painting objects using colors, light, and shadows. The subject of my art is light itself. It means, I draw light using objects and their colors.  My art is all about light.

Born in 1937 in Ulyanovsk region, USSR (now Russian Federation). Graduated from Savitski Art college. Pretty soon he developed a very original unique painting style. His art did not sit well with the communist ideology and got him into a lot of trouble. As usual, communist government ostracized him and condemned his art. In order to survive he stopped painting with oil and chose watercolor as his primary medium. He stayed with watercolor for many years till these days.
