The Artist

Igor Tulipanov’s style can be attributed to several Surrealists of the twentieth century with the mentality and skill of Flemish, German, and Italian painters of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

Igor Tulipanov entered the twenty-first century with a large number and variety of paintings. He continues to paint today and is now well into his seventies. Tulipanov studied at the Leningrad Polytechnic Institute and the Institute of Music and Cinema. 

Igor lives in New Jersey with his wife, Elena, who helps him in his work and creates a healthy atmosphere, which is essential for any artist.

Igor’s paintings have been exhibited in St. Petersburg, New York, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Geneva, Toronto, and Basel. Igor also has many private collectors and museums which house his works.
