Born in Ukraine in 1953, Gubin fell in love with drawing when he was a child, but government censorship stifled his ability to show his work as he began to develop the craft.
As the Russian government began to shift radically under Mikhail Gorbachev’s economic, social and political restructuring program called Perestroika beginning in 1986, new opportunities presented themselves to the artist: Gubin was able to show his work in the Kharkov Art Museum, and ultimately to immigrate to the United States in 1989.
Gubin, who currently has an art show at Radford University, reflects here on the journey and the purpose of his art.
