Magmedov (Megmedov) Georgy Ivanovich (b. 1921- d. 2001)

He was born on May 6, 1921 in Sochi, Russia.

From 1936 until 1940 he was a student at the Kharkov College of Art, Department of Painting.  In 1940, Georgy Megmedov wasi mprisoned and sentenced to five years of Hard Labor Camp (GULAG) and five years of exile for anti-Soviet agitation.  After Georgy Magmedov served his sentence in hard labor camps in Siberia (Omsk Region), in 1947 he was forced to live in exile in the countryside of Kharkov Oblast, Ukraine.  He was restricted to living 100 kilometers away from the big cities. Georgy Magmedov was released from exile after Josef Stalin's death in 1953.
Despite the hardship of living in exile, Georgy Magmedov continued to work as an artist.  From 1950 on, he had participated in almost all Regional, Republican, and All-Union art exhibitions.  Starting with "Khrushchev's spring" Georgy Magmedov got an opportunity to show his paintings at international galleries overseas. 

In 1957, Georgy Magmedov was elected as a member of the Kharkov Union of Artist, Ukraine.  Solo exhibitions of his work were held at the Kharkov State Museum of Art in 1972 and 1991, and at the Kharkov State Museum of History in 2000.

Magmedov's paintings are presented in art collections of Museums of Art and art galleries in Ukraine (Kharkov, Kyiv, Poltava, and Chernigov), Russia (Moscow, Sochi), Italy (Bologna), and the USA (Philadelphia) as well as in many private collections (Germany, Greece, Japan, Finland, France, Poland, Russia, Sweden, the UK, and Ukraine).

Magmedov (Megmedov) Georgy Ivanovich passed away in Kharkov, Ukraine on February 3, 2001.
