Stolin was born in Kiev, Ukraine and obtained a traditional art education from the age of four, and received a Master of Fine Art from Ivan Fedorov Polygraphic Institute in Moscow. After his education, he and his family immigrated to San Francisco, a four-year process. There he gained employment as a graphic designer and printmaker. During a business trip to Mississippi, Stolin met his wife, Mary Kay Holmes and the two settled in New Orleans, Louisiana. Stolin’s oeuvre demonstrates complex skills in multiple mediums and a deep understanding of history. The examination of Southern culture, history, and memories are common themes for Stolin. He continues to exhibit throughout Louisiana and his works can be found in public and private collections.
