Vartchenko Igor

Limassol, Cyprus



Born in 1959 in Tatarstan.
I am an oil engineer and work in the Oil and Gas Ministry.
Drawing is my real passion throughout my life.
My first picture was published in 1986 in one of the most popular Russian newspapers. From that time thousands of my caricatures were published in many newspapers and magazines in Russia and abroad.
