Anatoly Metlan

Anatoly Metlan was born in 1964 in Yalta, a city in southern Ukraine on the northern coast of the Black Sea. Metlan's interest in art developed at a younge age, the child of two parents who both experimented in art themselves. He pursued a formal education to hone his skills, graduated from the local high school of the arts in 1985 and going on to study at the Krivoi Rog University in Ukraine. Metlan began exhibiting his work while in college, and he soon began gaining notoriety among the area art community, accepted to the Artists Guild of Ukraine in 1989.

After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Metlan and his family migrated to Israel, where they continue to live. Metlan enjoys traveling during the summer to Italy and France, capturing the warmth, light, and bold, vibrant color in the seascapes and villages of thier coastal regions. Metlan's work has been exhibited around the world, including France, Israel, and throughout the United States. His work is eagerly collected by art lovers worldwide.
