Welcome to the Andrei Protsouk Gallery

About The Artist:-
 
“The ‘reinvention of images’ is an art that builds new bridges on the path to comprehension...”

Born in Ukraine, Andrei Protsouk drew his first breaths in the coal and iron filled skies of the city of Donetsk, in the heart of the powerful industrial engine of the former Soviet Union. 

It was a place more suitable for hard labour than for dreaming, yet, there is something about a bleak environment which encourages the growth of the imagination. 

Andrei’s artistic talents were spotted by teachers at an early age and Andrei was quickly transferred to the Donetsk Art School . A succession of art degrees and attention from noted professors led to his relocating to the ancient city of St. Petersburg where Andre received a Master’s degree in Fine Art from the prestigious Repine Academy of Art in 1990.

Though Moscow was the political capitol, St. Petersburg was the ancient capital first envisaged by Peter the Great, one of the most famous of Russian Czars. Even when the famous city was renamed Leningrad in an attempt to eradicate all traces of empire, St. Petersburg remained the sentimental capitol in the hearts of most Russians. Then and now, St. Petersburg remains the cultural centre of the ‘New Russia’ conceived by Peter the Great.

Andrei has studied, restored, and copied the working techniques of the Old Masters. His favoured medium is oil, applied onto linen and he uses lots of gold and silver leaf in his paintings, in the manner of the revered traditional Russian iconographers. (His rendering of St. George slaying the dragon is an obvious religious reference, but the composition’s rich and dark tones, it’s jagged dramatic action, suggests a lineage rooted in timeless historical painting).

Moving to the United States in 1994, Andrei found inspiration in his new experiences and exposure to this new, exciting and often strange culture infused his works with a liveliness characterized by bright colours and a dance of images.
