ABOUT THE ARTIST
One of the most impostant international artists of our time,Chemiakin’s artworks are exhibited by leading museums and galleries world wide. A quote from the Robb Report (Jan. 1995) states “so great are his talents that he is one of the few artists working today who sets the standard by which all other contemporary art is measured”.
“Mihail Chemiakin, by all accounts is an innovator and true creator. His passion for art, his creativity, his method and technical skills are among the strongest arguments which can be offered in support of the judgement, which ranks him as one of the great artists of our time. I became convinced that I was facing one of those great men who can change the course of the history of art”. (Dr. Jean Audijier – Head of the Art Dept., University of San Francisco)
He has earned 5 honorary doctorates. The Hermitage Museum held an exhibition in Oct. 1995 of such magnitude that a 7 volume catalog was printed for it.
The extent of his accomplishments, exhibitions and awards are too great to even try and mention.
