Vassily Borisenkov was fortunate enough to begin his concentrated study of art at the age of fourteen at the Leningrad Intermediate Art School. Those formidable years gave him the foundation necessary to be accepted at the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts, otherwise known as the Repin Institute of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture of the USSR Academy of Arts. It was there that he obtained the most rigorous classical art education, in addition to the practical application of his painting.

During this same period Borisenkov was influenced by the well-known Russian Realist, Sergei Ivanov, and the classical art of the late 1900's. Borisenkov, like many of his colleagues, had a deep respect and love of nature which is evident in his plein-air paintings. However, Borisenkov also liked the industrial landscape of the city. From the Black Sea to the Caucasus Mountains, to the woodlands of Siverskaya, Borisenkov painted the world around him in his motherland, with great passion and satisfaction.

Not influenced by what most people would consider retirement age, Borisenkov's paintings continue to represent the most beautiful, and youthful exuberant side of life, and more importantly, the vivid countryside of Russia.
