About Artist /
Vlad Maltsev is a self-taught visual artist residing in Finland. Vlad started making arts after 40, in 2016. Struggling with clinical depression for years, Vlad uses his art as a cure and as a weapon against illness.
Despite a late start, Vlad produced an impressive result. The artist immediately gains interest and nominated for major photographic fine art awards.
Vlad creates visually simple and graphical, but surrealistic and symbolic artworks with complexity and depth in it. The artist mastered to transfer his internal tensions to the canvas.
Like his favourite authors Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth, Vlad Maltsev invites us to find out the story behind the image. “I find it interesting to discover elements of eternal in ordinary things“, told Vlad.
