Victor Shtivelberg was born in 1960 in Odessa, Ukraine, where he graduated from the Institute of Fine Arts.
Since 1987 Victor has participated in over 30 solo exhibitions and about 60 group exhibitions in different countries. His works are included in several museum collections and many private collections all over the world.
In 1991 he became a member of the International Association of Art.
Since 2003 he has been living and working in Germany.
Although realism is a basic component of Victor Shtivelberg's painting, it is his mystic inner world, which brings his pictures to life and fascinates the viewer. Using symbols from various cultures he creates his own peculiar magnetic language, which is neither realistic nor surrealistic.
Over the years he has developed a brilliant, mature and highly individual colour palette, which he handles with refined sensibility.
