Inspired by geometric art Russian painter George Kurasov creates incredibly beautiful figurative images of sensual women and scenes from Greek mythology.
Artist was born in St. Petersburg in 1958 and still lives and works in the same place. In 1977 he entered the sculpture department of the Academy of Arts and he did not finish until six years later. These years were the years for his formation creating long lasting relationships, still intact. From his site there is something very interesting about himself: “Americans see Georgy Kurasov as a Russian artist, Russians as an American artist. Painters think he is a sculptor. Sculptors are sure he is a painter.” And it makes sense as he expresses his life experience and contradictory world view in great pictorial language.
