Grew up in Moscow, Russia and drew his first painting at the age of 13.
Being one of the best students of the Moscow University of Architecture, he spent a lot of time studying Russian constructivism, modernism, and postimpressionism as well as classical art. He also experimented frequently with different sorts of expressive abstraction. The influence of Wassiliy Kandinsky, Marc Chagall and Pavel Filonov is apparent in his work. Valentine Ioppe is the member of the Union of Artists of Russia and the Association of Architects of Russia. Valentine Ioppe participated in many international exhibitions in: Bulgaria (1982), Germany (1985), Greece (1990), Spain (1997), France (1998) and over 100 exhibitions in Canada, where he has been living and working since 1991. His original paintings can be found in numerous private collections in Canada, USA, Israel, Germany, Spain, Russia, and the Ukraine.
His powerful and dramatic interpretations of the nature and sea hold a unique place in Russian and Canadian art. His thorough knowledge of art and composition is evident in his work. It is warm, open, and produces a positive space around the viewer, reflecting the beauty and goodness of the surrounding world. Rich colours of his landscapes greatly contribute to the dull and ascetic modern interior design, and allows the viewer’s imagination to wander endlessly. Valentine Ioppe is generally known for his technical virtuosity, enormous versatility, and incredible originality, and is an important figure in the Canadian modern art scene.
