Andrei Nikolayevich Mironov (Russian: Андре́й Никола́евич Миро́нов; born 20 April 1975) is a Russian artist. He is known mainly as a portrait painter, though he also works a lot in the genre of religious painting.
His father was a Soviet militia officer. Born in Ryazan, Andrei moved with his family to Ivdel (Sverdlovsk Oblast) in 1983. He graduated from a local secondary school in 1990 and in the same year he returned to his native city. One year later, he began to study at the PTU-3 in Ryazan. In the meantime, Mironov prepared himself to enter the Ryazan College of Art. However, because his conscription into the Russian Army, he received his dimpola in industrial design before completing the full PTU program.
He took part in the First Chechen War. After the war, he chose the career of a militsia officer.
Being self-educated in painting, he works a lot as a portraitist after 2005. Already in 2007, he won the title "Profi" at Russian Art Week in Moscow. Later he participates in many exhibitions and increases the number of his clients.
His participation in the First Chechen War as well as his police work has had a considerable influence on his artistic development. The artist defined Christianity as "the main theme of his oeuvres". Some critics compare the "strangeness" of his paintings with the impression of the old masters' works.
Today his paintings are found in private collections, in the Kashira local museum, in the Monastery of Our Lady of Kazan and in the St. Nicholas Church in Yamskaya Sloboda (Ryazan).
