Ukrainian artist Oleg Kufayev was a mechanical engineer in Kiev. He moved to America over three decades ago, creating art inspired by the still lifes of Vincent Van Gogh. Still lifes to Kufayev are the most enjoyable model. He seeks to communicate the beauty of the world through his impressionistic paintings. While self-taught, Kufayev studied at Parsons School of Design. 

He currently resides in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.
