What started out as an informal group of artists sharing a strong common vision for art has become a successful national traveling exhibition: Realism Without Borders. Find out which contemporary artists have paintings included.

“Paintings by Soviet and contemporary American, Russian, Ukrainian, German, and French artists will connect two centuries and two continents of art via commitment to traditions of realist painting in an upcoming exhibition. The message of this display will be that realist painting has no borders and that art is eternal and beautiful and belongs to all,” according to Akhmed Salakhly of REPIN ART and Gallery Russia.

This diverse and talented group of painters from all over the world have had traditional training from such schools as the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts (Repin Institute); Penza Art Institute; the Kharkov Art Institute in Russia; Beaux Arts school of Auxerre, France; Laguna College of Art and Design; and the Academy of Art in San Francisco in California.
