Ivan Matvienko.

This remarkable Russian artist was born on January 21 in St. Petersburg. Since his early childhood the boy could easily depict on a sheet of paper anything he saw, and he did it so skillfully that the young artist's talent was hard to ignore. In 1995 Ivan Matvienko had a fateful encounter with Elena Khruleva. The promising artist became Elena Vaenga's husband and producer entirely engrossed in show business, his canvases and paints abandoned for a long time.
It is only 20 years later that Ivan Matvienko got back to painting. Now his amazing works are appreciated in Russia as well as in many other countries!
