Andrey Aranyshev, born in 1956, is a unique painter known not only in Russia, but also in many countries of the world. It is possible to say, that to some extent his artistic gift passed to him from ancestors. His great-grandfather - Dmitry Mitrofanovich Kucherenko - was a well-known violinist and opened the first musical school in Yaroslavl. The brother of the great-grandmother - Grigory Vasilevich Sarenko - was the architect who has designed many famous buildings of Yaroslavl, including a building of former hotel " Bristol " and fire depot on the Red Square. The artist’s works are remarkable for interesting forms, harmony of color scale and a variety of images, especially the portraits. In each image individuality and mood are distinctly read through, whether it is a fabulous mythological hero - Dionisis, Silen, the goddesses, disposing a string of destiny, - or characters from real life or the artist’s imagination.
