Vladimir Kush, a russian-born surrealist painter and sculptor, was born in moscow, in 1965 and first began drawing and showing artistic ability at the age of three or four. he started attending an art school at the age of 7 and entered the moscow art institute at the age of 17. at 18 spent a mandatory two-year stint of military service and was soon set to painting murals and canvases rather than regular infantry duties.

monet, botticelli, bosch, van gogh, dürer, schinkel, vermeer, and dali were a few of the artist to influence his early style. bored with the cézanne-style painting his art school concentrated on, Kush switched to surreal images and painted his first surreal picture at the age of 14.

in 1991, he moved to los angeles after visited the city for a show, but decided to move on to hawaii after a lack of interest in his work.

his art was first noticed by the asian continent and then spread into america. in 2001 he opened his first gallery, Kush Fine Art in lahaina, hawaii. he also now has another Kush Fine Art Gallery in laguna beach, california.
