Vitaly was born in 1984 in the industrial city in Russia. He started to draw when he was just four years. His first drawings were tiny spaceships, that is because he was simply fascinated by the space life.
At eleven years old and during the next two years at high school, he studied traditional painting, drawing with watercolors, gouache, oil paints, anatomy, modeling, design, art history, and illustration preparing himself to move to Moscow for the further education.
But due to the unexpected turn of fate in April 1998, Vitaly Samarin crossed the Atlantic Ocean and moved to Toronto in Canada. There he continued his artistic education: two years of studying of traditional painting at the school of Jacob Pichhadze, and then three years he studied the graphic illustration and worked on two environmental designs projects for The OCAD program.
