My Bio Vasily Kafanov is known for his playful and mysterious paintings that feature his trademark "Fishtower" – an architectural anomaly that combines reality with fantasy. The Fishtower is often seen floating lazily over groups of brightly - outfitted harlequins who dance, fiddle and play amid his dreamlike landscapes. A prolific artist, Vasily often relies on folkloric imagery mixed with beautiful and enigmatic symbolism to bring his vision to life on canvas. Born in Moscow, Russia in 1952, Vasily left that country and settled in New York City in 1990, where he now lives with his family.In 2000, Vasily teamed with the Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan to work on the band's album, Machina/The Machines of God. He produced 20 paintings for the lyrics booklets for the album and designed set for the group's global tour. His work has been exhibited by various galleries and museums in Chicago, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Moscow, Paris and Amsterdam
