Phil was born in Hong Kong of White Russian parentage, adopted and brought up in China then Canada.
Formally trained at the Art Centre College of Design in Los Angeles, Phil later migrated to Australia.
He devotes his time to fine art which he considers being his most natural form
of expression, exhibiting his work to a wider audience while gaining a deeper understanding of himself through his work.
As a Contemporary Realist, his sharp observation and subtle surrealism permeates throughout all of his work.
As I see art in everything and enjoy expanding my artistic repertoire,
I don't wish to limit myself to one subject matter or technique.
My NEW INSIGHT series is a personal artistic response to the changing times we are living through, images which I will upload onto my site gradually as the year unfolds.
I hope that my work in some way connects with you and with what you are experiencing during these tumultuous times.
