Anatoliy Yanev, known professionally as Tolick, was born in 1945 in Kirovograd, Ukraine. He graduated from the Kiev State Institute of Fine Art in 1974. He is a member of the All-Union Artist Association. His paintings can be found in private collections in the former USSR territories, Germany and the U.S. Tolick has participated in many international art shows and exhibitions in Poland, Germany, Italy and the U.S.
Tolick’s landscapes are consistently bringing a certain movement and dynamic feel to the viewer’s eye. His brushstrokes are almost fleeting in their process and the use of light takes the viewer right into his world. Today his works are becoming collector’s items throughout the world.
