1922 - 1996

Georgi Osokin was born on March 16, 1922 in the village of Varaksino in the Kazan region of Russia. He was the 10th son in a family of peasants. 

In 1938, he began to study painting in the studio of Georgi Zinoviev. He participated in his first exhibition in the city, Yoshkar-Ola, in 1940. 

In 1942 during World War II, Osokin was badly wounded in the legs. He was hospitalized in Ashkhabad in 1943 where he created a series of sketches, "Artists- Soldiers" which were exhibited in the Central House of the Soviet Army in Moscow in 1943.  In 1944, he returned to his home where he worked in the art commune, "Marii." He worked together with the artists Platunov, Sokolov and Osipov. 

From 1945 to 1950, Osokin was a student at Leningrad’s Mukhina Institute. His teachers were Piotr Buchkin and Aleksandr Lyubimov.

In 1964, the Repin Institute in Leningrad invited him to join the faculty of the restoration department--he worked there until 1977. 

Oskin was a consummate art collector, gifting many works to the Mariiski Museum named after Grigoriev and to the Art Museum of Kozmodemyansk. 

Georgi Osokin died in St. Petersburg in 1996.
