Born in Russia in 1972, Michael has chosen Montréal as his home since 2011. From there, his works continue to add to the beauty and value of both public and private collections around the world. He is a participant of 16 personal exhibitions, and more than 70 group exhibitions in different countries, multiple awards. Teaching art in the Syn Studio, a prestigious art school in Montreal, where he teaches more than five author's courses. As well as private lessons in his own studio and a lot of masterclasses around the world.
In recent years, he represented Canada at many famous watercolor festivals including Hong Kong, Slovenia, India, Italy, France, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexica, Hungary, and Portugal.
Joy and reverence are evident in everything this artist produces, perhaps especially in the deep play of light and shadow. He experiments continuously, challenging himself with a wide range of styles and techniques. “Every day,” he says, “I look, I hear, I feel my immediate environment. When painting, I relive these sensations. And I believe that if we pay close attention, each object and every moment contains the Universe within it.”
