In recent years, Andrei Protsouk’s paintings have become increasingly sought after in the UK having already established himself firmly in the US boasting collectors such as former President George Bush.
Such international demand has made the supply of original paintings limited and with prices heading into the tens of thousands has made them unachievable for many collectors. With this in mind, we are thrilled to have sourced three small original paintings by Protsouk this week starting at just £795 making them a great opportunity for budding collectors to join the journey with this exciting artist.
Born in the industrial city of Donetsk in 1961, Andrei Protsouk demonstrated an exceptional gift for art from a young age. With his father a photographer and his mother a master embroiderer, it seemed only natural that he too would pursue a career within the arts. On leaving school Protsouk attended the prestigious Lugansk School of Fine Art, followed by a Masters Degree at the Ilya Repin Leningrad Institute; widely regarded as one of the worlds finest art training programmes. Here, Protsouk studied under Evsey Moiseenko – a world renowned contemporary of Marc Chagall and Pablo Picasso.
In 1994 Protsouk moved with his family to the US, where he quickly established himself as a prominent figure on the contemporary art scene. His paintings became more colourful; his subjects more joyful, celebrating life in the freedom of American society. Many of his artworks now centre around the universal theme of love, frequently depicting couples in the midst of passionate dances or embraces. Unafraid to work to large scales, Protsouks elaborate pieces burst with vibrant colours, intricate shapes and varied textures. His use of constructive line demonstrates his innate creative ability and understanding of the human form, drawing comparisons to the figurative works of Michaelangelo.
His evident passion and dedication to his practice has deserved him phenomenal commercial success, having completed commissions for Johnnie Walker and Coca Cola as well as amassing an army of avid collectors.
