En la biografía que cuelga en su página se puede comprobar como Fiodor es un artista que no duda en hacer las maletas a la menor ocasión. Se dice en estos casos que uno no necesita llevar demasiadas cosas en la maleta.My name is Fiodor Sumkin. I was born in a Byelorussian family of artists. I grew up in Eastern Germany and at the age of 16 I left school. Two years later I moved to Moscow to escape the compulsory army draft. I lived in Russia for 6 years and made my living by drawing and selling my work on the streets. I also worked as a graphic designer in an advertisement agency. When I turned 19 I became the art director of an important magazine. At 21 with the help of my friends I opened a design studio that still exists today.
In 2001 the Creative Department of the Artist Holding Milano invited me to Italy. I worked there for half a year, after that I moved to Rome where I started to paint pictures again and arranged my first single picture-show. Today my works have spread around the world and you may find them in several American, Japanese and European Collections.
The last three years I lived without a passport in Europe. I used the credit cards of my girlfriend and could actually travel for free because there is no much passport control inside of Europe. At present I live with my girlfriend in Paris in a tiny little apartment which officially belongs to my girlfriend because she has got papers.
