Oleg Riabčuk was born to a family of artists, and he learned to keep the brush when he was a child. He studied painting in high schools in Vilnius, Lithuania and Moscow, Russia. People looking at his paintings could feel wind, rain, smell of the trees and flowers. He creates mostly realist pieces and represents the harmony of nature across them all, occasionally exploring naive and surrealist styles. Since 1990 he has held many personal and participated in group exhibitions in Lithuania, Poland and UK.
