Victor Andreevich Donskoi

Victor Andreevich Donskoi

Victor Andreevich Donskoi was born in Voronezh, Russia in 1945. From 1960 until 1964, when he entered the Navy, Victor A. Donskoi studied art in the studio of Yevginia Romanovskaya, who recognized his exceptional talents of Soviet and Impressionist Art.

In 1968, after four years of military time spent on a submarine, Victor A. Donskoi entered the Art College in Penza. It was, and still is, rare to be able to enter an art college without having first attended an art school. He graduated with excellence four years later-along with a recommendation to the prestigious Art Institute in Moscow-The Surikov. There Victor studied in the studio of the academician Yevginy Kirbik.

After graduating from the Surikov, Victor A. Donskoi moved back to Voronezh and taught in the art college there. Now he spends all his time on creative work-keeping just a very few private students.

Victor A. Donskoi has been a member of the Russian Artists' union since 1985 and has exhibited in Moscow at all Soviet and all Russian exhibitions since 1975. In 1996 he was commissioned by the City of Voronezh to complete a series of works based on the building of the shipping fleet of Peter the Great, which took place in Voronezh.

Victor A. Donskoi visited the USA in 1997 and also visited Chattanooga, Tn. He also exhibits in France, Germany, Italy and Korea.
Victor A. Donskoi's works can also be seen in the L P Cline Gallery, Chattanooga, Tn. and also in the book: Tradition Rediscovered, this book also available through L P Cline Gallery.

Victor Andreevich Donskoi was awarded a prestigious medal from the Russian Navy in 2006. The award and photo of Victor and the military men are shown at the 10th Personal Exhibition dedicated to the 100th Anniversary of the Submarine Fleet of Russia on March 16th, 2006.
