Anatoly Golookov

Russian born Anatoly Golobokov is an architect jewellery designer, art and antiques collector and, above all, a unique Florentine Mosaic artist.

Since starting his own workshop and art school in 1990, Anatoly's professional life has been devoted to the art of Florentine Mosaic and perfecting its techniques.

Florentine Mosaic, as the name implies, was developed in Florence at the end of 14th century. Slices of natural, precious and semi-precious stones are cut hand-polished, lined up with one another and then carefully positioned in the overall design with no gaps, forming unique exclusive masterpieces easily mistaken with paintings.
