Видео (на русском языке): After his son’s near death in January this year, which Jurij Ribkin prevented by giving heart massage, he had a dream telling him he should take up painting, which he did.
Only thing is, he just once before in his life created a painting. But almost losing his 25-year old son was such a chock to Jurij Ribkin that he ever since has used his painting as a way of dealing with the trauma.
Next year in January he’s been invited to Moscow to have his own exhibition. Ribkin lives in Petrozavodsk, Karelian republic in the Russian Federation.
In this video Jurij Ribkin presents some of his work.
