Valery Selin is from Yaroslavl. Having been born in 1970, it grew at the ordinary boy, nothing differing from peers and not showing inclinations of future artist in any way. Among the moments standing attention in its biography – the termination in 1984 of high school, receipt in technical training college. Further existence went according to the standard scenario: formation of living positions, search of the place and purpose in this world. And among all other there was still no minimum place for occupations even drawing. Perhaps, as an obstacle served congenital daltonism of Valery or own disbelief in talent of the painter, but, most likely, the destiny just gradually trained him for abrupt turn.
The artist Alexander Fedortsev draws the most various plots which are developed against the background of the beautifull places sometimes making a composition basis. The majority of works of the artist – are more than just views of rural areas or anonymous corners of the Central European part of Russia.

The artist, apparently, admires and admires beauty of early morning on the river, the beginning of new day, in the serene afternoon, evening twilight. All scenes look so natural that it is necessary to be surprised how the hand of the person could draw such grandiose landscape by means of only one brush.
