Classically trained, Vladislav Yeliseyev combines an artist’s eye with an architect’s obsession. After graduating in fine art from Moscow School of Arts, Yeliseyev earned a master’s degree in architecture from the Moscow Institute of Architecture in 1983. “My every work is a manifest of light existence. Understanding the nuances of light is a matter of life and death in landscape painting,” he says. Vladislav’s works won numerous awards at the juried art competitions in the United States and Russia. To share his passion and expertise, Vladislav founded the Renaissance School of Art in Sarasota where he teaches a formal curriculum and educates his students in classical drawing and painting. In this exhibition, Vladislav will show his most recent plein air works in watercolor and oil painted in Florida and France.
