Oleg Osipoff was born in 1969 in a family of doctors in Grodno. He had an ordinary childhood – school, sports sections, games in a courtyard…
He always liked to decorate with bright paints to overpass the “grey everyday life” in the Soviet Union. With that activity he could experience some positive moments in an hopeless atmosphere of that society. At that time he did not realized that it was a desire, and he just drew – colored pencils, watercolor, ink, and sometimes a simple ball pen.
After school, when he was 18 years old, he was called to serve in the army. It was the hard school of life and it influenced his future creativity. During his military service, when time permitted it, he developed his art skills.
After his military service, he enrolled himself in a medical institute, but he never finished it. He preferred to study art in an academy. His country had gradually changed for the better, opened a lot of new and interesting possibilities. He then had the opportunity to visit different countries, get acquainted with different cultures, where he discovered new styles and trends of art. Since this period, his creative way of thinking were transformed and continuously changed. He had the pleasure to do some researches in art history: attending a lot of famous artist’s exhibitions, buying some books about painting and sculpture. After his graduation from the Academy of Arts, he never stopped painting and constantly improved his technique, trying new compositions and color sensations.
