Biography from the Archives of askART

These Notes represent the beginning of a possible future biography for this artist. Please click here if you wish to help in its development.

The Russian painter of the fantastic, an aesthete and mannerist, Viacheslav Kalinin pictures the everyday and the supernatural in the life of Muscovite bohemians showing a similarity to Mikhail Boulgakov, particularly praised by the Moscow intelligentsia of the 1970's.

A gifted graphic artist, he considers himself as a follower of the romantic trend of the Moscow school. Kalinin introduces into his artworks the portraits of the real people, nudity, sketches of architectural monuments of Moscow, although he tends to the symbolic compositions.
