Igor Rimashevski

Igor Rimashevski was born in Minsk, Belarus in 1959. He graduated from the Minsk Art College in 1975 and from the Belarusian Art Academy in 1987.

Igor Rimashevski’s art is very poetic and narrative. His paintings are like magical fairy tales from everyday life, memories of youth and nostalgic dreams of a lost paradise. The fairy tale world of his work shows sincerity typical to the viewpoint of a child. Such realism mixed with magic, multiplied by a talented and brilliant performance, depicts scenes from day-to-day life, farms, streets and houses mostly from Igor's hometown Minsk and its neighborhood.

Random people on the street, policemen, misbehaving teenagers, and wedding parties – they all peacefully coexist with cats, dogs, birds or cows. And they all influence on the ambiance of the image and its perception.

Igor Rimashevski has participated in numerous exhibitions since 1982. His works are in the National Art Museum of Belarus and in private collections in Great Britain, Australia, Austria, Denmark, Germany, Lithuania, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Israel, Russia, Switzerland, Poland, Turkey, Italy, Japan and Belarus.
