Vladimir S. Tverdokhlebov


Born on the 18th of May 1937 in the Krasnodar area, Russia, Vladimir graduated from the Vera Mukhina Leningrad Higher School of Art and Industrial Design (now the Academy of Art and Industrial Design named after Baron Schtiglitz), St. Petersburg, Russia in 1967. He then moved to Almaty, Kazakhstan, where he continues to live and work.


Vladimir is one of the founders of the monumental art of Kazakhstan and creator of many iconic works in the Republic. He is an Honoured Artist of the Republic of Kazakhstan. His fountain “The Oriental Calendar” and the mosaic “Silk Road” have become symbols of Almaty. Many of Vladimir Tverdokhlebov’s tapestries, mosaics and works in oil and watercolour are in public and private collections across the world.
