Valery Antonov was born in Siberia in a small village of the former Soviet Union. If not for the unsettled life, his childhood would have been perfect. However, the problems of life did not prevent to observe the surrounding nature and to dream about the future. And at the age of 22 years he has become a naval officer. The world was open to him. Sea, ocean, beautiful nature of Kamchatka and the Far East.
In 1982 Val graduated from art school in Far East, but the naval service and the frequent change of places of residence does not allow him to enjoy painting.
Now he is 61 years old. His paintings are memories of his life, that pop out of his mind while watching old movies and listening to the music of his youth.
