Igor Skaletsky was born in 1978 in Voronezh. In 1990, together with his parents, he emigrated to Israel, but he did not forget about his homeland. In 2008, Igor graduated from MGAKH im. Surikov and received a bachelor's degree.

Today Igor works both in Israel and in Russia, without giving preference to any country. Skaletsky's technique is characterized by a mixture of classical painting and original collage, which makes the artist's works well recognizable and very interesting.

Collage, which was once treated as something frivolous, is gaining more and more solid positions in the world of modern art. This direction also has its own classics, for example, the very young, but already world-famous Rama Krishna Mukti Adi from Indonesia.
