Soviet and Russian artist, painter, and sculptor


According to the art director of the Yekaterinburg Gallery of Modern Art, Yelena Shipitsyna, young artists and critics should study such biographies and draw conclusions, so that they "are not left behind". As she pointed out, Misha Brusilovsky was a paragon of creative consistency and moral integrity in art, which is lacking nowadays.
He was a member of the Artists' Union of Russia, the Honored Artist of the RF, an  honorary member of the Russian Arts Academy, the Honorary Citizen of the Sverdlovsk Region, the winner of G. S. Mosin Award and the award of the Sverdlovsk Region's Governor "For Outstanding Achievements in Literature and Art".
Misha Brusilovsky was born in Kiev on May 7, 1931. His father was a military engineer and the whole family was sent on a long mission trip to the Far East in 1938 . In 1941 the Brusilovskies returned to Kiev, but after the beginning of World War II Misha and his brother Seva were evacuated to the South Ural with their aunt, whereas their father went up the line and mother stayed in Kiev for some time. In 1943 Misha's aunt was mobilized, and he accompanied her as a nurse in a hospital train, where he helped doctors and the wounded.
Half a year later Misha Brusilovsky returned alone to liberated Kiev, where he made his living by cleaning footwear at the local train station. In 1944 Misha Brusilovsky was taken by his street boss to a boarding school for gifted children, and later admitted to the Kiev art school. In 1953 the beginning artist left for Moscow and then studied in Leningrad. Upon graduation he was assigned to work in Sverdlovsk, where he taught and contributed for a publishing house.
In 1962 Misha Brusilovsky co-created the painting 1918 jointly with Gennady Mosin. It depicted Lenin in an unconventional way and gained all-Union popularity to the artists.
In 1991 Misha Brusilovsky got the Mosin Award for contribution into development of art creativity in the Urals. His works are kept in several largest museums and galleries of the Russian Federation, as well as in private collections of Russia, Austria, England, Germany, Israel, Ireland, the USA, France and Switzerland. In 2006 his canvass Football was sold at the record price of 108 thousand pounds sterling at the Sotheby's auction.
The sculptural group Townsfolk. Conversation depicting three famous Ural artists - Vitaly Volovich, Herman Metelev and Misha Brusilovsky - was set up in one of the central squares of Yekaterinburg in 2008.
