Mihail Chemiakin
 

BIOGRAPHY:

Mihail Chemiakin is one of the most acclaimed contemporary Russian Artists in the world today, having presented his Stunning and Myriad Creations to enraptured audiences around the world...including Presidents George W. Bush and Vladimir Putin. Chemiakin's Fame and Recognition come after crushing adversity and setbacks. As a teenager, Chemiakin's wildly creative talent was barely tolerated in the oppressive climate of 1960`s USSR - forced out of the prestigious Art Academy he attended, he was made to live the life of a lowly janitor with "mental problems" that "required" severe treatments. Finally exiled, Chemiakin escaped to Europe and then New York City, where he has been free to explore the worlds of art, music, sculpture and dance... standing tradition on its collective ear, and bringing to life the most exquisitely fanciful images and characters ever to prance out of man's wildest imagination.
