About Genya Gritchin

I am driven by classical art and I would love to follow in the footsteps of the beloved artists from the past like Veronese, Da Vinci, Andrea del Sarto.
I like the idea of art which is based on canons of ideal forms or divine ideal proportions. I particularly like these forms of art such as David and Ingre. Saatchi is a wonderful opportunity to reach international audiences.
