Vladimir Volegov

Born in Chabarovsk, Russia

Born in Chabarovsk, Russia, Vladimir Volegov began painting at the age of three and his talent would be noted repeatedly throughout his adolescence. After having attended the art school “Krivoj Rog” and having served in the army, Vladimir Volegov was admitted to the Lvov Polygraphic Institute in the former Soviet Union.

Beginning in 1984 Vladimir Volegov began participating in, and winning, International Competitions for poster art.

Vladimir Volegov moved to Moscow in 1988 and before long, Vladimir Volegov’s career in commercial art was in full swing. Notable Russian publishing houses sought his talents to design posted and CD and cassette covers for musical groups. While working with the publishing houses Vladimir Volegov continued to work on his paintings and participate in exhibitions.

In 1990 Vladimir Volegov began traveling to Europe where he earned money by painting portraits on the streets of Barcelona, Berlin, Vienna and other European cities. It is with this experience he further honed his skills in depicting the human form. Over the past fourteen years, his art has evolved into the striking figurative work he creates today. Vladimir Volegov’s vibrant color palette and bold strokes coalesce to create evocative images that possess a timeless sensibility.

Myron Barlow

Born in Detroit, Michigan
Practiced in France

Raised in Detroit, Michigan and remained deeply associated with that city even after he moved to France, where he lived for most of his life. His artistic career began during his teen years, when formal art training at the Detroit Museum School and at the Chicago Art Institute. He then traveled to Europe and enrolled in the Ecole des Beau-Arts, Paris in the atelier of Jean-Leon Gerome. Evidently, beginning early in his career, Barlow favored genre subjects in general, and he showed a number of these at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, where he exhibited almost every year from 1903 to 1910. Similarly, he showed paintings at the National Academy of Design in New York in 1907 and 1916. His Parisian experience was enhanced by study at the Academie Colarossi and, in 1898, by the first of many trips to Holland. Copying paintings in the Rijksmuseum, Barlow discovered Vermeer, from whose work he derived much inspiration. Like Vermeer, one of Barlow’s favorite artistic themes became the depiction of figures, often female and usually set in an interior; frequently isolated and motionless, surrounded by a dream-like atmosphere rendered in a single, dominant tonality, often blue.

Practices in Fort Collins, Colorado

I have been photographing since I was kid and discovered my dad’s Minolta 35mm. From there I took photography classes in high school, worked a part-time job at a photo store, and later graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a Bachelors degree in Imaging and Photographic Technology. Today, photography resides in every facet of my personal and professional life.

I strive for my photography to evoke a strong feeling or mood that comes from a unique perspective on the world around us. One of my favorite themes is the concept of “past life.” Examining textures, objects, and scenes that have an aura of a forgotten vibrance and life. I love the feeling of being somewhere that is still and alone, but where the undercurrent of memories and life still flows.

Vicky Montesinos

Born in Mexico City

Quick Facts:

Daughter of the acclaimed Mexican film director Fernando A. Rivero

Vicky is an artist with a great respect and reverence for tradition. Her new and highly original floral paintings continue the genre as defined by the masters: Odilon Redon, Georgia O’Keefe and Lowell Nesbitt. A Montesinos bouquet is full of passion and mystery. Patterns peek from under magnificent colors and the viewers is offered a window into the artist’s private world. Daughter of the acclaimed Mexican film director Fernando A. Rivero, Montesinos’s works have been greatly influenced by the ambiance and theatricality of the film world that she grew up in. Reflected in her portraits of men and women is the technique of a master, the unfettered emotion of a child and sensual quality that fills each canvas with a passion for life. Montesinos’s work reflect her sophisticated and cultured background: college in Mexico and Argentina, and apprenticeships with master painters Jose Bardasano in Mexico and Quinquella Martin in Buenos Aires; all have given a sophisticated quality to her work. It was in Bardasano’s studio that Vicky learned the very rigorous and laborious “Veladuras” technique of layering many thin layers of paint to achieve the densely transparent and incandescent look of her work. The luminosity is derived from the silver and gold leaf she often applies to a canvas before she begins to paint. Her first U.S. show received rave reviews in San Fransisco. Her first one person show was in SoHo, New York, where every original painting was sold during the opening. Her limited edition lithographs from 1984 to 1998 are completely exhausted and many recent editions are nearly sold out.
