Parhomenko Ivan Viktorovich. Was born in Krasnodar, Kuschyovskaya village, in family of the serviceman. Got art education in Lipetsk. Finished Art School and engaged in self-training and self-education under V.N.Dyoshin's sensitive guidance. During service in the ranks of RA didn't stop painting. I work in the mixed technics: canvas, oil, sometimes acryle, distemper. I am fond of photographic work, and often use photos in my artque works. Now I live in Moscow. I like travelling around the world and to be exposed in exotic places with extreme conditions. Works are held in private collections of such cities as Lipetsk, Voronezh, Moscow, Samara, Stalingrad (Volgograd), Omsk, Novosibirsk and such countries as Austria, Israel, Italy, Republic of South Africa, the USA.
