Maxim Komissarchik began to paint and make sculptures at a very young age. He made his first gouache painting at the age of seven inspired by the magic and colors of the circus. Born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia, a place which has inspired three centuries of great artists, he was able to absorb and transform its rich art tradition.
