Born in 1922, Malyshev graduated from Odessa Art College, and now is a representative painter in the impressionistic landscape of the Ukrainian Union of Artists. He is good at capturing brief impressions of mind and turning them into eternal artistic expressions. The main features of his paintings are the light as pearl background, the shadow of the woods, the wet and dry snow, and a strong contrast between light and dark. In terms of composition, he utilizes a narrow skyline in the landscape, the path of trees, the ups and downs of the terrains, and the layout of the South Russian landscape. His works have been included in the collection of Odessa Art Museum, which in 2000 held a largescale commemorative exhibition of the artist’s works.
