He began to study at the Prague Academy of Arts, but in 1881 he moved to the Art Academy in Munich with K. Pilotti, Zaitz and Jozef Brandt, who graduated in 1883. After graduating, he lives and works in Munich and Slovakia, creating mostly paintings related to the countryside in Slovakia. Yaroslav Veshin arrived in Bulgaria in 1897 at the invitation of the Minister of National Education Konstantin Velichkov. Since his arrival until 1904 he is a lecturer at the State Painting School (today National Academy of Arts) and works mainly in the field of domestic painting - "Vursitba in Radomir" (1897), "Orach" (Land, 1899) market in Sofia "(1899)," Smugglers "(1899)," Before Market "(1899)," Vurshitba "(1900) and others. The main theme of his work in this period is the life and labor of the Bulgarian peasant. In 1904 he became an artist at the Ministry of War, and although he did not abandon the other topics (the household and hunting scenes - Coalition (1910) (1910), "Hound with Greyhounds" (1911), etc.) became known for his masterpieces in the battle painting "Winter Maneuvers" (a cycle started in 1899 and continued to the Balkan War) and the Samaritan Flag (1911). During the Balkan War (1912 - 1913) he was a military artist with the rank of Colonel. He is the only one who is a "military artist" at the headquarters.
