Andre Platonov started painting at age 13, and has been painting during the past 25 years. His landscape paintings are heavily inspired by the immersive worlds of video games. Platanov enjoys using his lively imagination to create a world full of vibrancy and life in paintings.
Platanov gained foundational painting skills after taking a few college art classes. He is primarily a self-taught artist who learns through trial and error. Observing other artists’ techniques on YouTube has also influenced his painting style. Platanov has generated multiple commissions for his work through social media such as Facebook and his YouTube channel.
