Macha Belsky was born in Russia in Moscow, has a degree from the School of Architecture and ,at first, worked as an architect. She came to France (Lyon) in 1996 and since 1999 has devoted herself entirely to painting.
Her favourite subject is the urban landscape: “For me the town is a universe that moves and breathes, is full of hidden passions, light and shadows, that live independently of its inhabitants….”. Her artistes palette is gentle and harmonious and yet charged with tension and excitement.
The houses and trees that dance thrust you into another world where the workaday town becomes something unstable and fantastic where even the air vibrates…. Her style is inspired by the Russian painters of the early 20th century: Malevitch, Soutine and Chagall.
Macha exhibits in the galleries and salons of France, Russia, Germany, the United States and Canada.
Since 2008 she has taken part in the Salon “Comparaisons”, ART EN CAPITAL, at the Grand Palais in Paris. Her works are to be found in private collections at Moscow, St. Petersburg, Brussels, Geneva, Toronto, New-York.


"All my creation is consacrated to my son Ilya, autist."
