Artobolevskii was born into a clerical family in 1905. In 1938, at the time of the Great Purges, his father was shot. In 1926, he graduated from the Moscow Agricultural Academy Timiryazev. In 1927, he graduated from the Physics and Mathematics Faculty of Moscow State University, and afterwords worked in teaching. Between 1932 and 1949 he was a professor at Moscow State University, first working in the Department of Theoretical Mechanics. In 1941, with Boris Bulgakov, Artobolevskii established the Department of Applied Mechanics, and served as its head from 1941 to 1944. From 1937, he also worked at the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, and from 1942 was also a professor at the Moscow Aviation Institute.

In 1939, Artobolevskii was elected a corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, and in 1946 became a full member.
