“One day I woke up and decided to move to Russia and paint Ballerinas.”

-Kevin Berlin, 2003

For over 20 years, Berlin has been painting the secret life of ballerinas. His large scale mostly black and white paintings capture the hidden motivations of classical dancers. Focusing on moments backstage and behind the scenes, Berlin has worked with some of the most famous dancers and theaters in the world including the National Opera and Ballet of Ukraine, Kirov Ballet in St. Petersburg, Russia, Rebecca Kelly Ballet in New York, and Florence Dance Center in Italy. He has created monumental portraits in bronze and cast glass of Anastasia Volochkova and Maestro Luciano Pavarotti.
