Efim Konovalov




Discipline: Visual Artist

Efim (Jeff) was born in Siberia, educated in sunny and ancient Jerusalem and continued his education in Canada after immigrating in 1998. He has pursued the fine arts throughout his entire adolescent life, employing different styles, techniques, mediums and attitudes.

His artwork is aimed to express an idea, a disposition, or to relate an historical account - its purpose is to attract, to arouse emotion and to feed the intellect. Whether it be a nature scenery, a portrait, or a nature-morte painting, he seeks to render his interpretation of reality or the beauty of nature. He relocated to Richmond in 2014 and joined the CACR shortly thereafter.
Primary specializations are charcoal & conte, oil and acrylic on board and canvas, water colour and oil-pastel media
