Michael Solovyev was blessed with a formidable gift, yet he continues to experiment, explore and push the boundaries of his craft. This Montreal based artist expresses his creativity in many ways, including drawing, illustration, painting, architectural design, stage/set design and scenic art. He has designed a dozen books, and sets for more than 40 plays, and has been recognized with scores of group and private exhibitions of his art, as well as multiple awards.
Born in Russia in 1972, Solovyev grew up in Moscow and Ivanovo, where he graduated from Art College with degrees in both Architectural Design and Costume Design. Since 2011, Michael has chosen Montréal as his home. From there his works continue to add to the beauty and value of both public and private collections around the world, including Germany, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Canada, the U.S., France, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, and Ukraine.
