Georgy Kurasov was born in St. Petersburg in 1958 and still lives and works in there. In 1977 he entered the sculpture department of the Academy of Arts. However, it took six years to finish his degree. These years were the years for his formation. He created long lasting relationships that still endure. By watching his site, several things emerge: “Americans see Georgy Kurasov as a Russian artist, Russians as an American artist. Painters think he is a sculptor. Sculptors are sure he is a painter.” This is true as he expresses art through many forms.
His main theme is women, beautiful, even sensual women. However, elegance is evident in the women he paints. And the difference emerge: sexy versus sensual; fancy versus elegant. In both cases the latter prevail. The way he paints is unique, there is no art movement or style that Kurasov’s work belongs with it. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
