A graduate of Stavropol Art College and Stavropol Pedagogical University, Anatoly was born (1966) and raised in Crimea, an ancient and heroic land of magnificent beauty.
Anatoly Kakalov is a real monumentalist. His “larger than life” paintings are spacious and serene. He likes to paint female figures: relaxed, in beautiful poses. His color palette is soft. He creates a composition so perfectly balanced that the eyes never tire looking at his painting, finding more and more subtle details and nuances.
