sculptor, painter Toropigyn Oleg

 

Hello!

If you are interested in the details of my biography, here is what can be said in brief:

I was born on April 9, 1974, in Moscow in a family of artists.
I began drawing at the age of 1.5 years. Since I was 8 I became a participant in art exhibitions. At the age of 11 I entered the Moscow Art School at the Vasiliy Surikov Institute (now named The Nikolay Tomskiy Moscow State Academy Art Lyceum at the Vasiliy Surikov Moscow State Academy Art Institute), from which I graduated in 1991.

In 1992 I entered the Stroganov Moscow Higher School of Industrial Art (now Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts and Industry) and graduated from it in 1998.

 

Since 2005 I’ve been a member of the Sculpture Section at the Moscow Union of Artists and a member of Moscow Sculptors Association.

 

I participate in Russian and foreign exhibitions.

 

At the age of 18 I began teaching at my father’s studio (who is a sculptor himself  - Toropygin A.I.) and some other places.

At the moment I run my own school of sculpture, painting and drawing.

I am an author of more than 50 video tutorials in drawing, painting and sculpture. I run my own channel on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/WwwSkulptuRu .

 

Now we have a website which contains information about the training at our studio http://artstudying.com/. In fact it has all the same materials which can be found at our old website http://skulptu.ru/ but it will also include and English version.

My articles and video tutorials on the fine arts can be found at the website on the website dedicated to the education in the studio. They reflect my point of view at the time of writing, and are not the ultimate truth, but they rather help those who may find it helpful.

 

There you can also find information about the sculpture, drawing and painting lessons which I conduct.


My work you can see here: paintings, sculpture, drawing
