Andrey Kartashov

andrey kartashov

Andrey Kartashov was born in Uzhgorod, the ancient capital of Transcarpathia, in western Ukraine. Surrounded by the picturesque slopes of the Carpathian Mountains and majestic open valleys, he developed a special feeling for the world around him. The mossy stones and ancient castles awakened in Kartashov an interest in shape and texture, and finally led him to devote his life to art.

Kartashov graduated with honors from the College of Applied Arts of Uzhgorod in 1995. His senior project was selected as the best project of the year, and permitted him to enroll at the Lvov Academy of Arts without the usual entrance examinations. He also studied at a top academy in St. Petersburg, and became a member of the creative studios of respected Professors Y.M. Neprintsev and V.V.Sokolov.

In addition to numerous honors and exhibitions, Kartasov’s work has been purchased by private collectors and museums around the world. He has been exhibited at the Nicholson Art Museum in London, the Liu Haisu Art Museum in Shanghai, National Transcarpathian Art Museum in Ukraine, the Modern Art Museum in Amsterdam, The Methodical Fund of Repin Academy Museum in St.Petersburg, Russia, and the Brodsky Memorial Museum, also in St. Petersburg. Kartashov is held in private collections in Russia, Ukraine, USA, China, Great Britain, Poland, France, and the Netherlands.
