IN THE STUDIO with Timur Akhriev | gouache painting
a virtual art talk and demo
Sunday, September 27 from 2-4 pm EST
Join us from anywhere!
One of the things that we have missed most during the pandemic, is inviting the public to our studio to watch and learn about an artist’s creative process through painting, drawing, or sculpture demonstrations. Always fun and informative, watching artists work never gets old, is enlightening, and deeply satisfying.
Although we can’t have big crowds in our studio right now, we can invite you attend our new virtual art demo series from the comfort of your own home. All of you introverts may even prefer it!
Artists, collectors, students, art lovers, or just the plain curious will love these events.
Be sure to check out the other demos in the series.
This painting demo will be held live via ZOOM from the artist’s studio so that you can be up close and personal and listen to Timur talk about his process, materials, and inspiration while watching him work on a piece from the beginning throughout two hours. Timur will be working on a figurative gouache painting. Plenty of time will be set aside for Q & A. The work will be available for sale a few weeks later.
After registering, you will receive an email confirmation. One day prior to the event, we will email you a link to join the ZOOM event. Those who are not able to join our live event will be given access to a recording of the event for one week following the demo. A link to the recording will be sent one day after the live event. All events will be held EST.
Born in Vladikavkaz, the territory where Southern Russia meets Chechnya in 1983, Timur lived with his family until moving from the region during the conflict of 1991. After moving to St. Petersburg Timur began attending the St. Petersburg Iagonson Fine Art School at the age of twelve, where many of the professors studied at the Repin Academy of Fine Arts. While living in Russia Timur also received private tutoring from Nikita Fomin, son of Piotr Fomin.
After graduation, Timur immigrated to Chattanooga Tennessee to live with his father, Daud Akhriev and stepmother Melissa Hefferlin, who are also Russian trained artists. In Chattanooga, Timur attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga studying in the Fine Arts program. In 2005 to further his education Timur moved to Florence Italy to study at the Florence Academy of Art and Charles Cecil Studios of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture for two years. Today, Timur splits his time between the US and Europe. He is skilled in painting all genres of work and is a regular instructor at Townsend Atelier.
