Andrei Protsouk

About Artist: Born in Donet’sk, Ukraine in 1961, Andrei was self-motivated to paint and draw from a young age. His parents, Alexander and Anna Protsouk noticed his innate creative ability at the age of 6 when he impressed them with a clay sculpture of an Indian and a cowboy, possibly an early foreshadowing of his future life in the United States. Anna, a master embroider and calligraphy artist and Alexander a professional photographer, recognized Andrei’s talent as being one of exceptional caliber and therefore encouraged him to pursue fine art for the rest of his life. After high school Andrei had been accepted to the exceptional Lugansk State School of Fine Art, an equivalent of a specialized art undergraduate study in the likes of Moore Collage of Art and Design and Cooper Union here in the U.S. Andrei graduated from Lugansk in 1981. His teachers had taken a particular liking to the way of his painting and drawing; they entertained and realized the idea for Andrei to pursue a Master’s degree of fine art from the then, Ilya Repin Leningrad Institute for Painting, Sculpture and Architecture (now called, the Russian Academy of Arts) in St. Petersburg, Russia. The Russian Academy of Arts is still to this day regarded, in the art world, as one of the best classical MFA art training programs in the world for its art education curriculum being transcended from the European baroque masters of the 18th century. Andrei was taught under his dream professor at the time
