Just stumbled upon Mstislav Pavlov's art. Wow.
Here's a little about Misti (full name in his native Russian is Mstislav) Pavlov.
He was born in St. Petersburg (formerly)
In 1979, Misti began extensive studies at the prestigious art school, organized by the Academy of Fine Art of St. Petersburg, acknowledging gifted children of the arts. At 17 Misti Pavlov was accepted as a student of the Academy, and the Academy President, Professor B. Uvarov, after the first year exhibition of the Academy students choose Misti as his personal student. Graduating valedictorian from the Academy, his graduate work consisted of a series of seven paintings titled "Porch", for which he received the award of the "Best Graduate of the Year".
