Simon L. Kozhin (Kojin) (Russian: Семён Кожин) (born March 1979 in Moscow) is a contemporary Russian artist. His art varies among genres, such as landscapes, portraits, still life, and historical photography. He also has an excellent knowledge of oil, tempera, and watercolor painting. He paints scenery whilst traveling the world, so there are a series of works such as England, Ireland, Malta, Turkey, Switzerland and others. He also painted a series of works devoted to Russia's war with Napoleon in 1812.


Simon L. Kozhin is the son of father Kozhin Leonid Arcadievitch and mother Kozhina Irina Mikhailovna (Dayshutova). In 1998, he graduated from the Moscow Academic Art Lyceum. N.V. Tomsky. From 1998 to 2003, he studied art at the Fine Arts Academy in Moscow and completed his education in studio landscapes under the direction of Professor V. Afonin. He now lives and works in Moscow.

From 2000 to 2010, he participated in exhibitions in Russia and abroad.



His contemplative manner and the poetic gift of an artist able to use various techniques, as well as his exquisite sense of colour distinguish Kozhin from other painters of his generation and make his pictures noticeable in the mostly ambivalent context of today’s artistic life.

He has a wonderful eye color setting. He thinks compositionally in a very interesting way, because it is not enough be able see the colour, but you must have the opportunity to feel the colour picture in such a way, it could give you a plastic, picturesque and colorful imagine. And he is able to do it!
