Gennady Pronsky (1935-1999) was a native of Kursk, located in European Russia, seven times zones from the Primorsky Region and his home of Vladivostok. Pronsky studied at the School of Arts in Kursk before entering the State Institute of Art of the Far East. Service in the Soviet Pacific Navy (1955-57) interrupted Pronsky's early art career. However, the famous port city of Vladivostok kept him in the Far East where he started his professional work as company artist for the State Shipbuilding Factory-Conglomerate "Dalzavod".

"The genre which he chose for himself is landscapes. Pronsky loves nature and is drawn to its beauty, especially the uniqueness of the city by the sea. The wonder of Gennady Pronsky is ordered mainly on the contrast between the mood of the sky and water. Over the quiet, deeply elegant sea surface storm typhoon-like skies." Cityscapes of the far eastern maritime districts of Russia are also an integral part of Pronsky's creations.

Pronsky's paintings share an ongoing public exhibition in Vladivostok, Russia at the Museum of Fine Art, and his work is shown full-time at the Palace of Culture and Drama Theatre and other foundations of maritime Vladivostok. Pronsky's work is held in private collections throughout the former Soviet Union, U.S., Japan, Korea and China, and the artist through the years exhibited in a number of one-man shows in Russia.

In addition, Pronsky has shared public exhibitions in the United States since 1992.
