Artist Name

Vadim Shamanov

Born: 1973

Hometown: Kremenchuk

Based in: Bratislava

Vadim Shamanov (born in 1973 in Ukraine) is an experienced abstract artist who lives and works in Moncton, NB, Canada.
He received a musical and painting education. But it was painting that became the main way of self-expression and self-realization.

As a way of self-expression, Vadim Shamanov chose abstract painting, which allows the author to convey his creative ideas through the color and texture of oil paint. His paintings are a synthesis of emotions and impressions from music and nature.

Shamanov's works are distinguished by layering, complex composition, as well as a desire for volume and depth. With the help of a subtle three-dimensional effect in his paintings, he establishes contact with his viewer.

He mainly works with oil paint on canvas. But in constant search for new means of expression, he often experiments with materials and surfaces using steel sheets or OSB boards.

He has participated in numerous exhibitions in Ukraine and Europe.
His works are in private collections in Europe, the USA, and Japan.
