Metal Artist — Salem, Oregon
Victor Guschov was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts in 1950. He began to paint seriously when he was fourteen years old, working in watercolors and oils . His early paintings reflected the influences of Winslow Homer and the Rockport school and later the work of the Impressionists. Victor graduated from Worcester Academy in 1969 and went on to Montserrat School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League of New York . Impatient with academics and deciding that the best education would be to paint a thousand paintings and learn from his own experience and observation, he dropped out of school and began the life of a starving artist . Traveling around the country and living in cheap rooming houses, he refined his drawing skills, selling pen-and-ink sketches and watercolors. Part-time work and odd jobs paid for art supplies and rent .
With a family to feed when an economic downturn destroyed the art market he designed and marketed patinated copper wind chimes . He has re- designed them and is selling them again in these Corona times through Etsy . VictorGuschov.etsy.com
