Art is for-sale (except for one incredibly special piece, which is on display for view-only). Follow the FB event page for updates!
Rob Rayevsky was born in Moscow in 1955. He did not want to do sports or play piano. So his mother took him to an art school for children when he was nine. Rob explored every corner of the former Soviet Union. Eventually, his curiosity took him as far as New York City, where he was very impressed by stretch limousines, which he had never seen before. He decided to stay.
Rob holds a BFA in Graphics Arts from the Moscow Polygraphic Institute and a BFA in Illustration from Parsons School of Design. His first children's book was published in 1985 and then he illustrated 23 more. He also did some award-winning editorial illustrations. To know more of his artwork, see www.rayevsky.com.
In 2008, Rob swapped his brushes for a kitchen knife & apron. Rob, and his wife Kim, owned and operated Rolling River Cafe Gallery Inn, together with their daughter Miriam, in Parksville NY from 2008 to 2018. Afterwards, they ran the kitchen at Upward Brewing Company for 2 and 1/2 years, which Miriam left to start @jitterbugcatskills, and Rob & Kim left to open @doubleupcatskills in the near future in Parksville.
