Igor Babailov painted his very first portrait at the age of four (4) and received his first lessons in art from his father, Valery Babailov, who was the student of renowned artist  Aleksey Kholmogorov.

Child prodigy, Igor Babailov began his FORMAL classical art training at the age of nine (9) and in the span of sixteen years (1974-1990), he attained the highest levels of the academic art education and received his MFA/ Master of Fine Arts degree (official equivalent to Ph.D. in the U.S.) under the historic Russian Academy of Arts (est.1757). 
 
Igor Babailov studied directly under some of the finest artists and teachers in art history, and through his formal academic art education within the studios of the Academy, he belongs to the Direct Academic Lineage of world-famous Masters of Portraiture, Ilya Repin and Valentin Serov. 
 
Igor Babailov's fine art education (1974 -1990), rooted in the curriculum of the acclaimed Russian traditional school of art, especially contributed to his unparalleled skill in academic drawing (or drawing from life), which today is a fundamental challenge for many painters.

International Students of Igor V. Babailov

Nota bene:

The academic lineage herein stands far beyond inspirational moments of occasional meetings with master-artists, i.e. attending their public portrait demonstrations, and/or inspirational stories of such, told by art-mentors, friends, or acquaintances.
 
This lineage represents unbroken consecutive lessons within an academic institution, passed on directly from Teacher to Student, during a sustained period of time of formal academic education that resulted in earning a terminal Fine Art degree.

Igor V. Babailov, Hon. RAA, ellected Honorary Academician of the Russian Academy of Arts (est.1757) shares his expertise of the highest fine art education and academic credentials with his fellow professional artists and art students in the U.S., Canada, Italy, Russia and around the globe.
