10:17 pm: Biography of a Russian Artist (in English)

Uan-Zo-li, Boris was born in Moscow, Russia n 1938. His father was a Jew from a famous town of Odessa who worked as a civil engineer. His mother was half-Kosack and half-Chinese. His grandfather Wang Zo Li came to Russia in 1904. After the communist revolution Wang Zo Li adopted the Russian first name, but decided to keep his Chinese name. When a Russian bureaucrat was recording his name, he made a spelling error, and the last name became Uan-Zo-li. This mistake spawned the whole generation of Uan-Zo-li’s.

In 1969, Boris graduated from the Department of Book&nbsp;Illustrations&nbsp;in Moscow Polygraphic Institute, but continued to work as an engineer. In 1973, he started painting using his original style, later&nbsp;referred by his friends as &ldquo;Uan-Zo-lism&rdquo;.</font></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><o:p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3" </font></o:p></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><font face="Times New Roman" size="3">During the Soviet times, Boris participated in four exhibitions. Interestingly enough, during the latest exhibition his paintings were withdrawn from the&nbsp;gallery by the Soviet bureaucracy because they did not fit the communist vision &ndash; while his name was still mentioned in the catalogue. After the fall of communism, Boris&rsquo;s paintings were exhibited in a number of places, including the Central House of the Artists, one of the most prestigious Russian exhibitions. Some of Boris&rsquo;s paintings are now in <st1:country-region w:st="on">Germany</st1:country-region>, <st1:country-region w:st="on">Switzerland</st1:country-region>, <st1:country-region w:st="on">France</st1:country-region> and the <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">United States</st1:place></st1:country-region>. Currently, Boris is not&nbsp;exhibiting his works in&nbsp;Russia because his paintings drastically contrast with the art which is now fashionable&nbsp;there.&nbsp;He believes that the&nbsp;American art market is much more welcoming to his unique style, and he intends to promote his paintings there.

09:09 pm: The biography of a Russian artist (in Russian)

Биография Уан-Зо-ли, Бориса Лазаревича

Родился в 1938г. в Москве. Отец - еврей из Одессы, инженер-строитель (строил много и хорошо). Мать полу-китаянка, полу-казачка. Дед китаец приехал в Россию в 1904г. Фамилия его - WANG. После революции при паспортизации его фамилию превратили в Уан-Зо-ли. Эта фамилия стала моей.

Окончил в 1961г. Московский Энергетический институт. Инженером проработал 30 лет. Инженером был хорошим, у меня 165 авторских свидетельств на изобретения - советский аналог патентов. В 1969г окончил вечернее отделение Московского Полиграфического института, факультет художника книги. Книги не делал, продолжал работать инженером. В 1973г. начал писать маслом в своём, как выяснилось, оригинальном стиле, чем занимаюсь до сих пор.

В советские времена участвовал в 4 выставках, причём последний раз в каталоге я был указан, а мои работы экспонированы не были из-за их авангардизма. В постсоветское время участвовал в выставке в Центральном Доме Художника. Ряд моих работ находятся в Германии, Швейцарии, Франции, США, но в связи с тем, что меня как художника не раскручивали, то меня мало кто знает. Вообще артрынок в Москве меня не устраивает, т.к. здесь в моде художники стиля реалисты-парикмахеры. Поэтому я в Москве в выставках больше не участвую и хочу попробовать раскрутится в США. Посмотрим, что получиться.

07:09 pm: Welcome To All


I welcome you all!

I am not an artist. Actually, I am an engineer. I work for a large corporation, designing things that go into your laptops. But my father is an artist - which is quite amazing if you think about it. My father Boris "Wang" Uan-Zo-li lives in Moscow, Russia, he does not speak English, while I am here, in the US. 

I started this journal with the main purpose of showing the paintings of my father to the world. I hope you will all enjoy them.

Anyway, if you got interested, please visit my

Alexander Uan-Zo-li
