Anton Arkhipov

       Born in 1964 and raised in Moscow , Anton Arkhipov descends from a genealogical tree of several generations of artists, musicians and actors.  His father, Michail Arkhipov, a well-known dissident artist, belonged to a group of artists of the rough style from the 1950's-70's.  His mother, Tatiana Vtorova, an impressionist artist, descends from a famous dynasty of Russian artists, sculptors, and architects such as A. Benua, E. Lancere, Z. Serebryakova.  Anton was brought up in an artistic environment where various schools and trends from Russian Realism of the 19th century to 20th century Avant-garde and Contemporary art were represented.

      Educated at the Surikov College of Fine Arts in Moscow , Anton advanced with a promising talent learning skills in drawing, painting, plastic anatomy, and the history of art. Throughout his education Arkhipov’s fascination and influences evolved from the Impressionist masters, particularly Van Gogh, Cezanne, Renoir, and Claude Monet to the Russian Avant-garde artists of the 1920’s and 30’s. He graduated as one of the top students in his class from the Surikov College of Fine Arts in Moscow .

  Arkhipov showed his paintings in government-sponsored, formal social realist exhibitions until 1987 when he began to show nontraditional work in “underground” exhibitions with a young group of artists called “Kovcheg” ( Ark ). During this time, Anton began working on restoring church icons, murals, and frescoes in search of his own soul and style, free of any political or popular trends. As a result, his art became recognized in countries in Western Europe , Italy , England and Spain where he had several exhibitions. In 1990, Anton moved to America where he has continued to this day to pursue an ever evolving quest of representing humanity and its undying spirit on canvas, bronze sculptures and other forms of media. Today, Anton Arkhipov’s works are shown in many galleries across the country, and are found in private collections around the world.
