Soviet Russian graphic artist Yuri Aksyonov
Born on February 14, 1950 in Tyumen, Yury Alexeyevich Aksyonov studied in Leningrad. He completed two years at the Leningrad Higher School of Industrial Art named after Vera Mukhina. For six years (1971-1977) he worked as an artist-designer in the Tyumen branch of the Art Fund of the RSFSR. From the same period he began to participate in exhibitions of Soviet art. However, in 1977 he moved to Vladivostok for permanent residence. There, for 15 years (1977-1992) worked as an artist-designer in the Primorsky branch of the Art Fund of the RSFSR. In particular, he specialized in designing and sketching interiors, chasing, monumental painting, and easel graphics.
The artist works fruitfully both in painting and in graphics. But it is in the graphics that he is most organic, and it is in the graphics that his recognizable handwriting was formed. The works of Yury Aksyonov remind old frescoes. They are laconic, the figures are majestic and calm, and faces are distinguished by large, regular features.
