Aydemir Saidov


About the Artists:

Russian Painter



Aydemir was born in 1979 in a small city in a southern part of Russia. His father Seyfulla Saidov was an award winning artist, member of the prestigious Union of Russian Artists, and leader of the local art community.  Aydemir from a young age followed in his father’s footsteps.  At age three he painted a green goat that is still in the family archives as one of the most important items, together with his father’s medals and accommodations.

When Aydemir turned 11 he was accepted into a special school for gifted in art children.  Aydemir won all competitions and juried shows that children were allowed to participate in.

In 2000 Aydemir graduated with honors from Junior College and was accepted as an outstanding talent into the St Petersburg (Russia) Academy of Fine Art.   In 2006, he graduated with honors.

He often traveled to south Russia to make sketches of interesting landscapes for his future paintings. In 2003, he met his now wife Mari’na Ma’rina, who happened to be painting plein air in the same location as himself.

In 2007 Aydemir received an offer from Christie’s Fine Art Auctions of London to cooperate with them and he is currently still working with them.

Paintings by Aydemir are now in museums in Russia as well as in private collections in Great Britain, the USA, Germany, China and several other countries.
