Andrey Chezhin

Andrey Chezhin is a talented artist, immersing himself in both photographic and canvas art. Born in Leningrad, Chezin graduated from the Leningrad Institute of Cinema and Engineering and became exponentially involved in photography. Like an alchemist, he subjects his photographs to numerous manipulations, converts them into silkscreens, and then paints them.

Chezhin's personal contributions are extensive and include: Mirror photo club (1985) TAK group (1987-1996), Photopostscriptum art association (1993), Free Culture Fellowship (1996) as well as the International Federation of Artist (IFA) (1998). He is a member of the Union of Photo Artists of Russia and founder and contributor of the Autumn Photo Marathon annual festival (1998-2005), which became one of the best portrayals of the photographic scene in St. Petersburg in that period. Furthermore, Chezhin is the director of the PHOTOimage Gallery and the founder and director of The Drawing-Pin Museum.
