Evgenii Magomedov

Evgenii Gennadievich Magomedov
DOB: 08.02.84
Place of Birth: Leningrad (St Petersburg)
Education: Johansson Arts Lycee of the Repin Academy
Higher Education: St Petersburg State Institute Gertsena
Military Service: President's Regiment, Kremlin, Moscow

Prizes: Graduation diploma with honours, Johansson Arts Lycee of the Repin Academy (1998)
Prizewinner of the competition '850 Years of Moscow,' organised by the German Cultural Centre (1998)


Evgenii (Zhenya) Magomedov is 21 years old. He studied at one of the best art schools in St Petersburg, he served his compulsory military service in the President’s Regiment in the Kremlin in Moscow, and he is studying at what is probably the best art institute in the city.

These are the facts of his life to date; they do not say that he has an exceptional artistic talent. They knew about it in the Kremlin, however, where he was much in demand for sketching portraits of his fellow soldiers, and, as word got around, of people much higher up.

It is a glamorous biography, but the work is what matters. You will have an idea about the scale of his talent if you look at his landscapes, look at the dates of composition, and then work out that he was 11 years old.

He describes his ‘mature’ style as 'Photo-realism.' It is a style so close to photography that you can look very closely at a sketch and think that it must in fact be a photograph (or perhaps worked from a photograph) but no, it is all by his hand.

He can draw from life, and also from a photograph; if you would like him to draw a portrait for you, please write to me, and I will put you in touch with him.
