Analysis of the art market trends indicates that figurative painting is enjoying a revival after years of market dominance by conceptual and abstract art.
At Frieze London 2019, the biggest sales were of figurative paintings. This trend is also visible in commercial and institutional galleries all over the world.
To successfully work in the figurative tradition, one requires a robust classical art training, which is not equally available around the globe.
Russia and in particular its renowned Saint-Petersburg Art Academy is a special place where the classical western art traditions have been carefully preserved for close to three centuries.
Despite being deeply rooted in the classical tradition, our artists speak about the world we all live in which makes their artwork easier to relate to.
We help you get closer to their creative process through a series of interviews and in-depth coverage of their studio practices.
