After graduation from St. Petersburg Academy of Art in 1999, Andrew was invited by a New England, US based art group to take part in their exhibitions and activities, spending that entire year in the United States into the Millennium.According to Andrew,Â“This year in America gave me more as an artist then all eight years of my formal studies in the prestigious Russian academies. I am a descendent of farmers, and I was impressed by the New England landscapes, and how a man in America avoids harming its environment. After seeing Royo and Pino at Artexpo New York 2000, I suddenly realized what direction I want to take my art in. After staying for a year in the United States, I spent two years in Russia perfecting my art.While Andrews work was being sold successfully in galleries across Florida, California, Ohio and Arizona, the artist was taking part in a variety of group exhibitions and auctions in France, which resulted in all of his work being sold out.Since 2000, Andrew has worked with dealers from Western Europe and the US, exhibiting and selling his paintings in such US cities as Carmel, Scottsdale, Palm Desert, Las Vegas & Hawaii. Two of Andrews pieces were also auctioned off by Sothebys in 2002 and 2003.
