Milchael Milkin was born in Kharkov in the Ukraine in 1964. As a student of Architecture at the town's university, he participated in several art exhibitions. After graduating, he worked as an architect, but all the while kept painting and participating in public exhibitions. Soon after, Milkin started teaching fine arts and in the late nineties, his works were exhibited in an art show for Modern Art in Paris.
Milkin concentrates on still lifes, which he paints dramatically with thick, expressive brushwork and brilliant colors.
In late 2001 Milkin decided to immigrate to Israel and to dedicate himself to art. Milkin's work is exhibited and collected throughout the United States, Israel, Russia and France. He has had several one-man and group exhibitions in Israel and abroad.
