Biography

PETR SHVETSOV (b. 1970, Leningrad, USSR). Lives & works in St. Petersburg. Works with painting and graphics. One of the very few of his generation, he uses old-fashioned technique and seeks new opportunities in it.

The main goal of his art is to make beauty, which is so few around. Petr Shvetsov searches for the lost harmony and turns to the past. 

His art is expressive that is why he still manages to shock, touch the audience on the raw, that stands ready for anything.
