Artist Vadik Suljakov was born in 1960 in Moscow, the cultural center of Russia. Suljakov studied at the Moscow First Art School and served several apprenticeships at the Moscow Graphic Art Committee and the Moscow Art Group. After continuing his studies in Europe, Suljakov became enchanted by the awe-inspiring cities and towns steeped in history and began painting the beautiful landscapes and city scenes that Suljakov admired during his travels. Suljakov moved to Southern California in the 1990's, refining his signature style of vibrantly colored and textured paintings composed of both oil and acrylic. Vadik Suljakov creates images that convey a timeless sense of history and old world beauty.
