Contemporary Abstract Paintings by Peter Dranitsin

Topics: abstract paintings online…

Please visit me on my website at

I am a self taught and self representing artist. I grew up in the family where my mother a professional artist and my father a professional photographer. As a kid growing up I did take some art classes and learned the basic concepts of drawing, painting and sculpture.

After finishing high school I have served in the active military duty with United States Marine Corps as an infantry man. I did one tour in Iraq: fought in combat. During my military career I have thought of many things I could do when I come home. I have found out that creating art was the best thing that could ever happen to me.

I love to paint and contribute all of my time creating new paintings. I prefer to paint with new acrylic paint. I feel that I have full control over this type of paint. Many people ask me what motivates me to paint __" creating something beautiful out of something unknown is my motivation in creating new abstract paintings.

Hi Pete,

First things first..."Thank you" for your service and for putting yourself on the line for our country.

Secondly, major Kudos to you for jumping in all the way with your art. I would love to do the same, but it's not time yet...I still need that "day job."

Your stuff is great. I especially like "Perfect Match."

Much success to you!
