Andrew Atroshenko paintings



 His paintings of women are amongst the most sensuous I have ever seen.




Andrew Atroshenko was born in 1965 in the city of Pokrovsk, Russia. Accepted as a gifted child in 1977 into the Children's Art School, Andrew graduated with honors in 1981.

Two years later, Atroshenko entered Bryansk Art College, and in 1991 was accepted at one of the most prestigious art schools in the world, the St. Petersburg Academy of Art.
In 1994, Andrew began taking part in exhibitions such as St. Petersburg Artists in Reutlingen, Germany, the exhibition of a group "Academy" in St. Petersburg (1996), and "Teacher's memory" (1997).
After graduation from St. Petersburg Academy of Art in 1999, Andrew was invited by a New England, US based art group "Bay Arts" to take part in their exhibitions and activities, spending that entire year in the United States into the Millennium.

In 1992 Atroshenko married a fellow student, Maria, who is now an art critic in St Petersburg, Russia, and has a daughter named Alexandra. Like many artists, Andrew has his artistic references and influences, but his wife and daughter are the inspiration for his passion.
