Igor Samsonov was born in Voronezh, Russia, on January 7, 1963. Samsonov ultimately decided on a career in mathematics and earned the equivalent of a Master’s degree from Voronezh State University. He accepted a job with the Institute of Research, but found himself more and more drawn back to art, especially after viewing some of Van Gogh’s paintings at the Hermitage Museum in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg). He moved to Leningrad, where he studied at the Ilya Repin Leningrad Institute for Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture. He was particularly influenced by his tutor Oleg Eremeev, who advocated not only for technical excellence, but for a painting that had “the artist’s emotional signature.” Samsonov’s work is extremely modern, yet remains classical. His paintings are rich with symbolism and tell stories–some well-known, others created by Samsonov himself. He is particularly interested in the themes of transformation and power.
