Pavel Tayber was born in 1940 in Kharkov, Ukraine. He studied traditional classical painting at Kharkov Art College and received an MFA from the Ukrainian Academy of Fine Arts. A member of the Union of the Artists of the Ukraine, he became an Honored Artist of the Ukraine in 1992. Pavel Tayber has been included in Russian and Ukrainian art historical texts as an outstanding contemporary artist.
Done in the rich hues, Tayber's works depict both figures and landscapes. Smooth or textured painted in acrylic or oil Tayber's pictures tell little novellas about men and nature. The style of his works depends on an emotional mood of each novella - sometimes it is na´ve, sometimes - symbolic or philosophical.
Tayber's work have been acquired by numerous museums, art galleries and individuals in the USA, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Israel, Great Britain, France, Spain, Russia and Ukraine.
Since 1995 Pavel Tayber has been living and working in California. He had multiple exhibitions at the galleries of New York, San Francisco and Palo Alto.
