Dobrovizhski was born in 1937. From a young age, he was interested in art and architecture. As a young man in the 1950s, he studied among the great artists of the time at Kiev Art Academy, which gave Dobrovizhski grounds toward becoming an exceptional painter. Although his primary interest as an artist was landscape, he also spent a lot of time on architecture, which is reflected in his paintings of churches and other scenic and historical areas of his hometown and country.
