Vladimir Volosov is a Doctor of Science, Professor, winner of the State Prize, and author of more than 100 scientific articles. In 1990, he left his scientific career and completely devoted himself to painting.
"One can find, though rarely, people for whom to live one life is not enough. And they manage to live several lives within the same God-given amount of time…”- was written about him in the press.
At the threshold of his fifties, he decided to live one more life, a new, alluring life of the free artist. He walked away from his established scientific career and completely devoted himself to painting.
Now he is author of several hundreds paintings. The main direction of Vladimir's painting is lyrical realism and abstract compositions.
In the ten months since his arrival in the USA, he has won two gold medals at an exhibition at the Asa Art Gallery in New York. Some paintings were included in “International Contemporary Artists Vol VI, New York, 2012"
Volosov’s works are currently held in galleries and private collections in Russia, USA, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Israel, and Japan.

Twelve Pieces by Contemporary Artist
Vladimir Volosov (Born 1937)
“After the historic collapse of the Berlin Wall, in 1993-1994, I participated in a very important exhibition of German, Jewish and Russian artists “Zwei Welten- Eine Kunst” – “Two Worlds - One Art.” This exhibition traveled all over Berlin and its neighborhoods and was aimed at uniting the cultures of the Western World and Post-communist countries.
I do not speak great English, but I speak the languages, which are understandable by every nation: the language of Science and the language of Art. In 1960, I used the language of Science (formulas and experiments) to communicate with American physicists, Nobel Prize winners, pioneers and creators of lasers and nonlinear optics Charles Townes and Nicholas Bloembergen. During the last 25 years of my artistic creativity, I used the language of Fine Art to make more than 900 oil paintings that are spread all over the world: Russia, USA, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Israel and Japan.”
