Vjetsjeslav (Slava) Ivanov was born in Lebazje, a village in the Kemerovskaja region of Siberia on 28 October 1952. Initially an electrical engineering welder by profession, he began a four-year art course in Kiev, Ukraine in 1978, where he worked as an artist and advertising designer. In 1988, he moved to St. Petersburg, where he still lives and works.

Slava came to the Netherlands for the first time in 1993, subsequently visiting the country again several times. He paints his townscapes of Amsterdam from photos dating from the period 1900 1920. His paintings are strongly realistic and sometimes also strike a surrealistic note due to the "Willink colours." As well as townscapes (oil paintings and watercolours), he produces still lifes (pastel) and landscapes. He is a multifaceted artist, apparently able to reproduce diverse styles effortlessly.
