Art from Metrov (@metrov) / Santa Barbara, California, US

Metrov began professional life in New York City in 1970 as a designer/illustrator for world-renowned Push Pin Studios, then as a Fine Arts painter in a loft studio across the street from Andy Warhol’s Factory. He studied painting  with Gilbert Stone, a Prix di Rome Scholar, whose mentor was the late, great Gregory Gillespie. Having exhibited in NYC & Los Angeles, Metrov’s paintings currently reside in dozens of collections worldwide. Patterson Sims (former curator New York Whitney Museum), Mick Jagger, Bianca Jagger, Keith Richards, Ben Vereen, and Margaux Hemingway are a few of the aficionados who have collected his work.  •  •  •
