Anatoly Burykin was born in Moscow in 1950. He studied at the Institute of Architecture in Moscow where, having completed his studies, he taught drawing. Wassily Kandinsky, Konstantin Melnjkov, El Lissitzky, Aleksander Rodchenko inspired the artistic environment of the Institute.
Anatoly has often said that his choice of abstract art stems directly from the unique atmosphere created by these famous artists.
He has lived in Vienna, Austria since 1990 where he paints and undertakes artwork for international organizations.
His work has been exhibited in Moscow (Russia), Rovaniemi and Helsinki (Finland), Paris (France), Vienna (Austria), Padua and Sarmede (Italy).
Since 2010 the artist has embarked on a new series devoted to city landscapes. In this series Anatoly draws his inspiration from the simplicity of architectural urban shapes, light and space. His paintings are to be found in private collections in Austria, Italy, Russia, Finland, France and the USA.
