Nobody translates the world on canvas quite like Anatoly Krynsky. Rendering our stolen glimpses as enduring images. In doing so, he reveals even our most taken-for-granted things as vibrant, graceful and bursting with exquisite detail.
Anatoly Krynsky was born in 1937 in Kharkov, Ukraine, and received his formal training at the Kharkov Institute of Fine Arts, where he studied drawing, color, and art theory. His influences include Wassily Yermilov, one of the founders of Constructivism and Alexander Archipenko, a pioneer of modern sculpture.
In 1967, Mr. Krynsky moved to Moscow to be at the epicenter of art in the Soviet Union. During the next several years, he worked as an illustrator for the Association for Print and News (APN) and Molodaya Guardiya Publishing in Moscow.
Mr. Krynsky emigrated in 1976 from the Soviet Union with his family. After working in Rome for one year, he moved to New York City.
Limited to showing his work in East Germany, Hungary, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, and Finland prior to his emigration, Mr. Krynsky has since exhibited in the United States, Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Holland, and Japan.
Mr. Krynsky currently resides in New York City with his wife, Irina, daughter Oksana, and son Philip.
