I have an ink/watercolor by this artist. I have found that he was a Russian poet and dabbled in art, but no other information. That is, IF this is the same "Beliy" (Andrey Beliy). Any help? Thank you!

Actually, not sure if this is the same person or not. First, can I ask if anybody has an idea on the signature? What is the name???
Thank you!

Hi!Andrey Beliy was the pseudonym of the Russian symbolist poet and writer Boris Bugaev.
In his brief biography is not mentioned that he had any interest in painting ,though he was a very talented man.
This is one fact , second why would he sign by his literature pseudonym on his paintings and third - not in Russian letters

The search goes on! I found the same info, though it DOES mention that he "dabbled" in art but I have found absolutely no other examples of his art (IF this is truly the same person). Could the signature be something else? Thank you.....

It's a coloured etching, not an ink/watercolour. There is one the same on ebay at the moment:

I'm not sure whether it's by Andrey Beliy or not, but there is a museum dedicated to him in Moscow - I think it's run by the Pushkin State Museum - you could probably find out by emailing them.
