The son of a Russian military officer, Chemiakin was born in Moscow in 1943, and moved with his family to Germany as part of the occupying army in 1945.

Chemiakin showed an early aptitude for art and upon the family's return to the USSR in 1957, he enrolled in the Repin Academy of Art in Leningrad. Ever the rebel, Chemiakin became enamored of, and joined, the Non-Conformist Movement in the Soviet Union. Unwilling to compromise his art to the whims of the state, he was seen as a threat, committed to an insane asylum and repeatedly tortured.

In 1971, after an unsuccessful attempt to escape the country, Chemiakin was exiled. He lived the next ten years in Paris where he created his famous Carnival at St. Petersburg series. In 1981, he immigrated to New York, where he now lives as an American citizen.

Chemiakin has spent hundreds of hours researching visual objects, leading to his development of the theory of metaphysical synthesis. This theory, reflected in his art, seeks original sources and roots of artistic expressions of the past and synthesizes them into present applications.

One of Chemiakin's most popular and powerful themes is his carnival series: complex studies in form, texture, and masks. All of Chemiakin's works evoke strong emotional responses from the viewer; drawing one into the painting to experience it in a personal way.

This lithograph contains a hand drawn, one-of-a-kind, pencil remarque below the image. This is number 8 of an edition of 200.
