Astafiev’s work is appreciated - he was awarded the highest category in the profession of the artist-restorer.
The artist’s decision to devote himself to the specialty of the restorer was not accidental - his profession was owned by his father, who also worked in the Tretyakov Gallery. Naturally, Astafyev, who was surrounded by creative people since childhood, chose the school of the «Memory of 1905» where he received the profession of an artist.
However, the young man was fascinated by the art of ballet (even the diploma work in the school was written on a ballet theme) and, having decided to try his hand at it, after a serious contest he began studying in the experimental class of the Bolshoi Theater Choreographic School. He studied there for three years, besides studying in the ballet classes, he got knowledge of the history of theater and music, but the workplace still chose the Tretyakov Gallery, the painting department.
At the same time, Astafiev continued to paint. The landscapes painted by him decorate private collections, they are in the collections of famous museums of the country. The current exhibition is opened by his colleagues on creativity in memory of the remarkable master and will work till November 11th.
