Valery Basanietz (1945)

Paintings of Valery Basanietz reflect extremely delicate images of people and places, which like pleasant mirages of the past continue to cherish one’s memory. Through artist’s preference in depiction of certain details in contrast to others, his paintings express serene images that are so close and yet so seductively far away.
Valery Basanietz was born in 1943 in Ukraine. In 1963 he graduated from Odessa College of Fine Arts and since 1965 has been exhibiting throughout the former-USSR as well as abroad.
Basanietz’ art works are represented in art museums and private collections internationally. Currently, he lives and works in Odessa.
