Boris Shoshensky

Boris Shoshensky comes from a generation of artists on his father’s side. He received art education in the formal traditions of Russian and the West European schools. Studying modernism taught him to respect the “two-dimensionality” of the painted surface, the modeling importance of color from Cézanne, the power of color from the Fauves and liberation of “Form”, from Futurists and Russian Constructivists.

Boris moved to the United States in 1979 from the Ukraine. He is an exhibiting artist and art educator for 20 years in the United States, where his career blossomed in the environment of free expression.

Boris Shoshensky’s paintings appear in many prestigious collections throughout the United States and Europe.
“An original artist is not one who imitates
nobody, but one whom nobody can imitate.”
