Building Russian Shanghai: Vasily Zasipkin

Introducing Vasily Zasipkin (Василий Адрианович Засыпкин) – a versatile artist, arts teacher, designer, interior decorator and community activist. From his native Moscow the Russian civil war drove him to Vladivostok, from where he drifted to Harbin, Shanghai and eventually Singapore. Zasipkin thrived everywhere – in spite of major setbacks, such as the loss of all his Shanghai works in 1937. Read more at Building Russian Shanghai.

Is his real paternity "Адрианович" или "Андрианович"? I can't decide. Both seem possible.
