Valentin Massow, rus. Валентин Павлович Массов (11 April 1937) is a Russian painter, watercolorist who created a new direction in art - Spiritual Realism. 

In Russian transcription, the surname Massow is written through the letter "V" (Massov). But "Massow" is a German surname and does not have a root in Russian, so I (O.R.) write it in the German manner as Massow. So...

Valentin Massow, a brilliant artist, has emerged as a significant figure in the art world, bringing forth a unique perspective that blends spirituality and realism. His talent transcends traditional boundaries, as he delves into the depths of human emotions and experiences.

What sets Massow apart is his profound connection to spirituality. Through his artwork, he explores the intricate relationship between humanity and divinity. Massow's trust in God is the driving force behind his creative process, infusing each piece with a sense of transcendence.

By intertwining the physical realm with the ethereal, he creates captivating visuals that speak directly to the soul.

Massow's work challenges conventional notions of art by offering an alternative lens through which we can perceive reality. His ability to capture both tangible beauty and intangible truths is truly remarkable. With every stroke of his brush or pencil, he invites us to explore the unseen dimensions that exist beyond our everyday experiences.
