Russian born artist Andrei Protsouk has embedded his use of line into all of his artwork and has coined this technique as “Fine Line.” His straight, constructive use of line embodies his classical training in art in every way.
After high school Andrei had been accepted to the exceptional Lugansk State School of Fine Art, an equivalent of a specialized art undergraduate study in the likes of Moore Collage of Art and Design and Cooper Union here in the U.S. Andrei graduated from Lugansk in 1981. His teachers had taken a particular liking to the way of his painting and drawing. The Russian Academy of Arts is still to this day regarded, in the art world, as one of the best classical MFA art training programs in the world for its art education curriculum being transcended from the European baroque masters of the 18th century.
Andrei was revered as a master of composition - where most artists were limited to only a few elements of composition in their artwork, he incorporated all of the elements of composition in his. This captivates his audience’s eyes, which are drawn to move around his canvases so that every time anyone looks at his art, the unique composition doesn’t make you see his painting the same way twice.
Protsouk, today, has come a long way from soviet Russia. He finds inspiration in his environment in all the modern societal activities which can be seen in his paintings.
