BIOGRAPHY of Andriy Nekrasov, Honored Artist of Ukraine and member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine
Andriy NEKRASOV was born on June 14, 1962 into the family of a military man. He spent his childhood in the Kyiv region surrounded by the amazing views of the blue Dnieper and golden meadows which made an unforgettable impression on the young man. Inspired to paint, Andriy studied in the workshops of Ukrainian artists Nartsis Kocherezhko and Vasyl Korchynskyi and quickly found his painting style, where the main focus is a sense of colour and a playful combination in the works. Working in oil and using a palette knife in large strokes, he paints still lifes, sea horizons and city and natural landscapes.
His creative work includes many Crimean and Carpathian landscapes, scenes of rapid mountain rivers, coastal views of Odessa and the ancient Dnieper as well as studies of the architecture of western Ukrainian and European cities.
Personal exhibitions have been widely held at the Ukrainian Culture Fund, the Cultural Center of the Ukrainian Society for the Preservation of Historical and Cultural Monuments of Ukraine, the National Reserve “Sofia Kyivska”, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, the Lviv Writers' Union of Ukraine, the Kyiv Central Officers' Building, the Government House and the Supreme Council of Ukraine. Many of the artist’s works are also held in private collections, both in Ukraine and abroad.
Today, Andriy Nekrasov works in London painting the historic architecture of the city and the beautiful landscapes of the United Kingdom.
