Mikhail Gubin | Queens, New York USA
MIKHAIL GUBIN was born in Kharkov, Soviet Union, now Ukraine, in 1953. From a child Mikhail show a disposition to drawing and from age of 4 he took private lessons in art. In 1978-1981 he attended Art and Tech College of Zagorsk in Moscow region.
Gubin came to artistic maturity before the social reforms of Perestroyka, at time when avant-garde art was relegated for surreptitious “apartment exhibitions” where painters dared show their work only to a few trusted fellow artists and friends.
Gubin's and others calls for artistic freedom led to trouble with the authorities; he brought his family to New York in 1989 and became a U.S. citizen in 1995.
The field of his interest is painting, drawing, collages and photography.
Throughout his residence in New York he has had 28 solo exhibitions and participated in more than 200 group shows. His memberships include Audubon Artists Inc, Silvermine Guild of Artists and the National Collage Society.
