Michael & Inessa Garmash art, Reproduction of M&I Garmash oil painting on canvas.
Michael & Inessa are a husband and wife pair. Both work on the same piece, which is extraordinarily unique in the art industry. Together they create a classic impressionism that remains both beautiful and timeless.
Michael and Inessa have worked together creating paintings, stained-glass windows, mosaics and drawings. They have exhibited in Sweden, France, Russia, Ukraine, Belgium and Finland. They continue working with their daughter Polina as a model and occasionally include themselves in their compositions.
Michael was born in 1969 in Lugansk, Ukraine. He began painting at the age of three and by six started his formal education at the Lugansk Youth Creative Center. In 1987, he graduated valedictorian from the Lugansk State Fine Art College and became an art teacher there. Inessa Kitaichik was born in 1972 in Lipetsk, Russia. She entered the Lugansk Fine Art School at age fifteen. Since early childhood she has excelled in ballet, gymnastics and music. Inessa attended classes in all three disciplines and, after graduating from music and ballet school, entered the Lugansk Fine Art School at age fifteen. At seventeen she was honored as that year’s best undergraduate.
