Fedoseevich Klementyev


Born in the city of Buguruslan in the Urals. Graduated from art school in Sverdlovsk. Participated in restoration of churches in Miass, Zlatoust, Chelyabinske, Arkhangelsk, Novaya Zemlya. Searched in parallel and treated stones, seeking to understand patterns in the structure of malachite and Jasper. Collecting gems on the saw cut where it was possible to distinguish natural pictures with a certain subject, theme or image. But similar stones in nature is rare, Fedoseevich of Mine had the idea to make such "stones", but with its plot and composition.

The search took several years. The artist experimented with plaster, cement, Florentine mosaic, epoxy resins, encaustics paints; had studied many works on chemistry, Mineralogy; studied natural processes influencing the creation of color and pattern, Jasper, malachite and other gems. The experiments required a constantly warm temperature; in the Urals, such conditions are short time, so in 1958 the artist moved to the Crimea and settled in Alushta. In the late 60-ies of experiments have been a success: have been found the composition with which Min Fedoseevich created their own unique paintings that received for external similarity with natural gemstones in the name of "stone painting". The creativity of the artist is multifaceted, he is subject to the portrait, landscape, still life... all the exhibitions of the works of M. F. Klementyev had a very high estimation of experts and the audience.

He died in Alushta.
