Anatoly Metlan was born in Yalta (a southern Ukranian city) in 1964. He developed an interest in art at a young age, and was encouraged by his parents who also had a love of art. His talents were recognized and he attended a high school specializing in the arts. He graduated high school in 1985 and went to Krivoi Rog University to continue his art studies. He began exhibiting while attending the university and was accepted to the Artists Guild of the Ukraine in 1989. When the Soviet Union fell in 1991, the Metlan family took advantage of the opportunity to emigrate to Israel, where they live now.
Metlan's works include painting of scenic views of the countryside, urban landscape, the sea and interiors and exteriors. He regularly travels to get inspiration from the landscape painted by the Impressionist painters he admires. Metlan's paintings of harbors and sea views bring back the image of the Mediterranean coast that has inspired so many other painters. Metlan has exhibited throughout the world- Europe, Israel, the United States and his works can be found in galleries and private collections.
