Andrew Wolkoff was born and lives in Moscow. He showed an interest in the graphic arts from childhood, as well as a passion for corporal punishment. His profession in design allowed him to draw inanimate objects with confidence, but anatomy was his weak point. Therefore, from 2008 to 2012, he concentrated on figure drawing and greatly developed his technique.
His favorite technique is lead pencil. Usually Andrew Wolkoff sketches a contour with 2B pencil and tones with H-3H. Then he scans it and post-processes the artwork in Photoshop. His ordinary post-process is sharpening and brightness adjustment, and sometimes color toning or painting. All his colored pictures are painted using Photoshop and a graphics tablet.
Andrew Wolkoff's favorite theme is historical punishments. His richest source of inspiration is the serfdom in Russia (1500-1861). Those times gave unlimited rights for a landowner over his slaves, which provides unlimited room for the artist to explore scenarios. In addition, these scenes may have a national color.
