Georgy Kurasov was born in 1958 in St Petersburg, Russia. Without any effort , Georgy seems to have emigrated from one surreal country to another.
Georgy spent his childhood on the Petrograd Side. As far as he recalls, he modelled things in plasticine and drew resting on the vast wooden windowsills. Not so much aesthetic pastimes as compensations for the grey minimalism of everyday life, the absence of light and bright colours.
At thirteen years old his mother put him in the art school attached to the Academy of Arts.
