Vladimir Sokolov was born in 1932 in former Yugoslavia. He was trained and educated in Graphic Design and Fine Art. After visiting the USA in 1965, he decided to come back in 1966 to stay and in 1975 he became a citizen of the USA.

In the early sixties he developed a unique painting style, mixed media-collage influenced by constructivist artist Naum Gabo, a well known teacher from New York

Vladimir’s most recent works are concerned with issues of form, light, and space in creation of large and mysterious concepts of the Cosmos.

Vladimir likes to describe his paintings as “a mixture of acrylic, paper, and music!”




Since 1980 he has owned his studio gallery in Laguna Beach, California. The gallery is a part of the artist’s working studio and is open daily from 11am to 5pm and by appointment. The gallery is located directly across from the Surf and Sand Hotel in Laguna Beach.
