George Dolgy

Artist + George Dolgy

I was born in the USSR in 1960. I graduated from college and worked for a few years as an architect in my Ukrainian hometown. In 1989, I came to Philadelphia as a political refugee, and went back to school. I graduated from the architectural program at Temple University in 1992, and I've been working as an architect ever since.

My professional work was unable to satisfy my creative urge. I wanted to express myself freely, without constraints of the budget and building codes. I attended private painting classes for seven years and worked in my own studio in Philadelphia for eleven years. It was there that I developed my own unique painting style.

I have lived and worked in New Orleans from 2011 till 2016. I had my studio at Studio Inferno, 3000 Royal Street in the Bywater. In 2016, I had to move to San Francisco, where I live and work nowadays. But I left my heart in New Orleans, and I hope to come back, one day.
