Artwork of the Day: Have a Nice Day, Andrei Protsouk
Andrei Protsouk favors gold or silver leaf — and remnants of the original oil paints he brought with him from the Soviet Union in 1990 — in the manner of the traditional Russian iconographers. Andrei updates their style to sometimes ironic ends: here his icon is a flashy, Hollywood-style cowboy, presented with that quintessentially American phrase, “Have a Nice Day”.
From his studio and Andrei Art Gallery in Stroudsburg, PA, Andrei runs his art publishing operation and andreiart.com to reach collectors around the world. Andrei has displayed his art in Germany, Holland, Russia, Ukraine, and across the USA. His works are a part of private and corporate collections around the world, including the Academy of Art in New York City; Barcelona Museum of Art, Spain; Italian Art and White Knights of Venice, Italy; Museum of Art Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia; Francais Lang Art, Hamburg Germany; Art Connections, Zurich, Switzerland; Gallerie Adrienne, San Francisco; Artrageous Gallery, New York City, Phoenix; and Vera Gallery, Aphine, Greece.
