This year is 30 years already since we are the friends with Andrej. We studied Art at the same Alma Mater with the same professors with a difference in one year. Andrej Chabanov was one of the best Master of Portrait i ever knew from the first his art works. Last years he is successfully working with Landscapes. His professional skills are based at his knowledge of the achievements of Old Masters and French Impressionism . He creates his crystal world of solitude step by step and each his painting gives us this feeling "beauty from the sky".
Alexander Sokht created the Portrait of Andrej Chabanov a few years ego:http://www.xpgallery.com/collections/alexander-sokht/products/portrait-of-artist-andrej-chabanov-by-alexander-sokht
