About the Juror: Vlad Yeliseyev

Vlad Yeliseyev is no stranger to beautiful scenery. In fact, he's traveled around the world to paint interesting cityscapes and landscapes. But unlike many artists who are drawn to a postcard-perfect site, Yeliseyev usually can be found around the back of a building, along the street or in an alleyway, capturing "commonplace scenes" wrote BJ Foreman in her article "Everyday Poetry" in the Watercolor Artist Magazine (Feb.2016).

The Russian emigre came to the Unites States in the 1980s equipped with a classical art education from Moscow School of Art and a Master's Degree in architecture from the Moscow Institute of Architecture. Now a renowned watercolor and plein air artist, his paintings are in personal and commercial collections worldwide.

Yeliseyev is the founder of Renaissance School of Art in Sarasota, Florida, where he teaches the basics of visual art: perspective, lighting, shading and color. After receiving many inquiries about his watercolor techniques, he released an instructional DVD -"Painting Architecture" - which is available for purchase at this site. His second video workshop? - "Impressions in Watercolor" - was released in 2017 and is also available for purchase at the same link.

In his work as a plein air artist, Vladislav has participated in prestigious invitational paint-outs nationwide and abroad. He has won numerous awards including Best of Show, Collector's Choice Award and The BoldBrush Award.

Vlad is an exhibiting member of many art societies nationwide, and a signature member of American Impressionist Society, National Watercolor Society, and Florida Watercolor Society.
