Art of Anton Vitkovskiy

Hello my name is Anton and I create art. I'm a self taught artist.Never studied to be an artist. In fact I have only started doing it since 2011.

I was born in USSR in 1985 in Simferopol, Crimea Ukraine.In 2001 I moved to the United States.Went to high school here and then to College in Virginia Beach,VA. I got accepted to the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond and there I started to develop an interest for fine art . I was fascinated by the works of Picasso,Jean Michel Basquiat, Jackson Pollock and many others.

After university I moved to Virginia Beach again and then to New York City.Living here added a certain amount of depth to my work,it allowed me to understand different cultures even more.

Tribal primitive cultures of Africa, Latin America,pre christian Europe, Sumerian and Egyptian civilizations all of them influenced my vision of art in general.For some strange reason I find them to be very close to my visual interpretation of the world.

All of the things above mix in my mind and I project this vision on canvas.I believe these images come to me from outer cosmos,many times I will stand in front of my painting and wonder if it was really me who painted this.Just like any viewer of my artwork I looking for visual clues in order to unlock a specific painting.
