Misha Frid - Russian Federation

Art Brokerage: Misha Frid Russian Artist: Misha Frid's sculpture has won worldwide acclaim, and has been declared a National Treasure in the Soviet Union. Under Soviet law, the works that Misha created there are not allowed to leave the country. Misha was also the artistic director for Erte's wonderful sculture. Misha did the physical sculpting on several of the most popular Erte bronze sculptures and was involved in creating the Erte jewelry. Misha, an internationally acclaimed Russian sculptor, chose one thing he considered more important than his highly successful sculpture, his freedom and his family's freedom. Even though a hero, the Soviet life stifled his creativity. As a graduate of the Surikov Art Institute and a member of the Soviet Sculptor's Union, Misha accepted commissions arranged for him through a central office in the capital. The government provided him with a studio, sponsored his exhibitions and gave him work, but of course, was his sole employer. Misha traveled where directed and produced what was ordered. Misha's works are owned by the Pushkin Museum of Fine Art and the Hermitage Museum in Leningrad, and have been exhibited in Japan, Poland and Germany. In 1967, his work was featured in the Russian Pavillion at Expo 1967 in Montreal. Frids' personal and artistic lives have changed dramatically since his immigration to the United States in 1973. Misha was also the artistic director for Erte's wonderful sculture. After 11 years in Los Angeles, Misha and his family settled in Toronto, Canada. A blend of vision and realism, Misha's work represents a rare talent that bridges the centuries between the classical forms of Rodin and the sensual grace of Erte. Misha has worked in clay, wood, and marble but he currently sculpts primarily in bronze and acrylic. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
