Michael Milkin (1964–)
Michael Milkin was born in Kharkov in the Ukraine in 1964. As a student of Architecture at the town's university, he participated in several art exhibitions. After graduating, he worked as an architect, but all the while kept painting and participating in public exhibitions. Soon after, Milkin started teaching fine arts and in the late nineties, his works were exhibited in art shows all over Ukraine, France and Germany.
Milkin concentrates on still lifes and landscape, which he paints dramatically with thick, expressive brushwork and brilliant colors.
In late 2001 Milkin and his family decided to immigrate to Israel and he dedicated himself to art. Milkin's work is exhibited and collected throughout the United States, Israel, Ukraine and France. He has had several one-man and group exhibitions in Israel and abroad.
