Slava Brodinsky was born in 1955, in Birobijan, in eastern Russia. His artistic talent was recognized at an early age, and he was therefore encouraged to study the arts. After serving in the Soviet Army, Brodinsky returned to his home town and began studying at the Fine Arts Academy of Birobijan, from which he graduated with honors in 1979. After graduating from the Academy, Brodinsky pursued his painting career, creating monumental pieces while simultaneously participating in exhibitions throughout Russia.

In 1991, Brodinsky and his family emigrated to Israel. The different light and color in Israel deeply influenced his work. Brodinsky also started incorporating different media, such as sand, impasto, and the use of rough paint brushes to increase the texture of his pieces. Brodinsky’s vibrant colors, strong compositions and expressionistic style result in appealing and effective works of art. Brodinsky has had his work shown in solo exhibitions, as well as many group shows throughout the United States, Canada, France, England and Japan.
