Marc Chatov
Study for Lavender

About

Born in Key Largo Florida in 1953, Marc grew up in a family of artists, musicians and stage professionals and began his career in fine art painting at age 18. His mother, Geneva, was a dancer and Powers Girl model in New York, and his father, Roman, was a Russian-born and trained muralist, figurative painter and portrait artist. In 1958, Marc’s family moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where his father and uncle, Constantin Chatov (also a portrait painter and trained concert pianist), founded the Chatov Studio. Growing up amid the rich culture of his family’s art atelier, Marc was exposed to the academic principles of art and to professionals in the art world, witnessing from an early age how they translated the world onto canvas. When he wasn’t drawing pictures for his own enjoyment, he was typically found sitting for his father Roman, whose passion for painting was all consuming. As a teenager, Marc studied painting under the tutelage of both his father and uncle at the Chatov Studio. Marc attended Georgia State University as a fine art major where he studied drawing under the late James Sitton who was acclaimed for his drawing and art anatomy instruction. Marc also studied at the Art Students League of New York under Michael Burban and Nelson Shanks. A devout romantic with a passion for traditional realism and the academic principles of fine art painting, Marc began an intense, full-time apprenticeship with his father and uncle in his early twenties. Marc found great inspiration from his constant exposure to art at home and during his travels to France, Russia, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Greece, Cuba and Mexico where he studied and observed the works of historical masters including Velázquez, Repin, Sorolla and Sargent. From these creative influences, Marc achieved his distinctive style and mastery of brush and pigment that make him renowned in his field.
