About the artist
«The dream of reason produces monsters. Imagination deserted by reason creates impossible, useless thoughts. United with reason, imagination is the mother of all art and the source of all its beauty.»
- Francisco Goya
My name is Mikhail Solovyov.
Live and work in St. Petersburg, Russia.
DOB: 21st November 1968 on the day of the Archangel Michael.
It all started with a film black-and-white photography…and I ended up picking up a pen and ink. I have only one year of practical experience as an artist…but age, alas, hurries me somehow to be realized :-)
My favorite media are ink and paper, pencils.
