Contemporary Russian painter Andrey Remnev graduated from the Moscow Art School in 1983 and went on to study the medieval and Renaissance iconography of the Orthodox Church. His works blend classical Russian culture with scenes from peasant and contemporary life reflecting a variety of themes, including music, beauty, politics, religion, and the persistence of history.
You can find the artist on his website.
“My own style evolved from the ancient icon painting, Russian art of the 18th century, the compositional innovations of the World of Art group and Russian Constructivism. As painters of the past, I use natural pigments bound with egg yolk.”
