Mai Volfovich Dantsig (Russian: ??? ????????? ??????; born April 27, 1930 in Minsk )

He is a Belarusian artist active during the Soviet era and independence of Belarus.  He is considered to be one of the founders of the contemporary Belarusian art.

Dantzig graduated from Minsk Art School in 1952.  From 1952 to 1958 Mai studied in the Surikov Art Institute in Moscow, under Mikhail Kurilko and Victor Tsyplakov.  From 1958 he has been teaching at the Belarusian Academy of Arts.  From 2001 he has been the chairman of the Department of Painting there.  In 1995 he became a People's Artist of Belarus.  In 2005 he was awarded the Order of Francysk Skaryna.

Mai often paints in large formats, which, in addition to his expressive style, helps transform his chosen themes from quotidian to important, and imbues his pictures with a monumental character.  His works often take on symbolic or metaphorical significance.

He created many paintings and drawings related to the German-Soviet War and Soviet partisans.  He is also famous for his series of portraits of Soviet Intelligentsia including Bulat Okudzhava, Georgy Tovstonogov, Ales Adamovich, Vasil Bykau.
