Year of experience
Walera Martynchik was born in Belarus in 1948. He spent his childhood in the medieval town of Grodno, where he developed an interest in art. Despite being expelled from a foundation course in Moscow, he was able to enroll in the Public Art course at the Byelorussian Academy of Fine Art and Drama in Minsk in 1965. After graduation, he worked in a State Public Art Company, while also developing his own style in painting. Walera's first chance to exhibit his works was only after "Perestroika". In 1987, he was the leader and organizer of a group of non-conformist Byelorussian artists known as "Forma". Walera now lives and works in London, and his works are exhibited internationally and are in public and private collections worldwide.
