Soviet and Russian artist, born December 26, 1962 in the Yaroslavl region. An artist who has become a real discovery of recent years. He devoted his whole life to fine art, without leaving his village in the Yaroslavl region. Igor Alexandrovich never received an art education anywhere, but he has nothing to do with "amateur" or primitive art: long-standing "studies" and the deepest erudition of art added all the richness of modern fine culture to his original work. The only thing that he lacked for a quarter of a century was that his works would finally leave the village house and people should see them. Success was not long in coming: the Art Manege exhibition, the UN information center, the Znamenka center - it is invited to dozens of exhibitions, and nowhere else are spectators - collectors, artists, art historians - indifferent to the artist’s talent. Igor Sapunkov is a unique phenomenon in Russian painting and graphics. A master who instantly found his place in the current art process. And, I think, in the near future it will become popular not only in our country.
