Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

While working on this painting, I was inspired by summer, the first rays of the summer sun, scents filling the entire atmosphere around so that the heart sings. I wanted to convey in the picture such a special state of silence of nature, when even the flight of a bumblebee is heard. Under the gentle warmth of the first summer sun, all living things quiet down, absorbing, being filled with energy for further growth and development. I wanted to embody this feeling in the curves of the iris petals illuminated by the bright sun, accentuated by a dark contrasting background.
Nature is the main source of my inspiration. Creating paintings, i dream of bringing harmony and beauty of nature into your home. Artwork is made in an ancient technique of wet watercolor, which traces its history back to ancient frescoes.
Watercolor painting is done on a sheet of paper moistened on the reverse side and lying on a damp cloth. I use only eco-friendly and renewable materials: 100% cotton watercolor paper and professional watercolor paints. It is painted on textured watercolor paper 300 gr / m2, cotton 100%, medium grain, acid free with professional watercolor paints. All used materials are eco-friendly. Please note that colors may vary minimally depending on your monitor. Signed on front. Unframed. Eco-friendly package.

Artist Profile

Born: 1984

Hometown: Moscow

Based in: Moscow

Art is, in my opinion, the most peaceful and most transformative way to communicate on a human level. It reminds us of what is really important and has the ability to overcome any barriers in communication. Art for me is beauty, being in the present moment, unity with one's own essence.
I have always been attracted to the realistic tradition as a powerful method of visual communication. Sometimes my paintings start as a reaction to something that touched me in my surroundings, other times it starts with an idea or concept that goes through a series of sketches until it turns into a final picture. Watercolor has become my favorite technique as the personification of modernity in its mobility, speed, freedom and courage.
I am from Russia. During my works i strive to show the harmony and beauty of the world which we live in, capture the miracle of everyday life through the beauty of simple things. My inspiring models are fruits, vegetables, berries, flowers as gifts of nature and insects that express a life itself, a movement, in combination with beautiful things and materials created by man such as glass, metal, fabrics, delightful patterns. I received a full classical arts education. First i graduated from the art school, and then The Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts and Industry with honors as an artist of monumental and decorative art. An integrated approach to studying at the university played an important role in my becoming as an artist. My teachers followed to the classical academic school's traditions with zeal. As a student, I mastered many different techniques - watercolor, egg tempera, oil and glue painting. I practiced a lot in copying paintings in museums for studying the school of old masters. So I soaked up different traditions of the past, which became the foundation for my further creativity. I work in an ancient technique of wet watercolor, which traces its history back to ancient frescoes. Watercolor painting is done on a sheet of paper moistened on the reverse side and lying on a damp cloth. I use only eco-friendly and renewable materials: 100% cotton watercolor paper and professional watercolor paints. It is painted on textured watercolor paper 300 gr / m2, cotton 100%, medium grain, acid free with professional watercolor paints.
I see art as a process, a continuous search and introspection. I hope that some of my searches for meaning and beauty will resonate with the audience.
