"Real people are so complex that capturing their depth is a challenge worth the effort. Nastya is one of those ungraspable individuals. On one hand, she has a flamboyant personality that immediately fills a room with laughter and high energy; on the other hand, her appearance is sophisticated and elegant, as if she has just stepped out of a Jane Austin’s novel or an Anton Checkov play. Grasping this duality is no easy task for a portraitist."—Yuriy Ushakov
This work is typical of Yuriy’s dynamic style that not only transcends Realism and Impressionism but also has hints of expressionism. The strong draftsmanship of the artist allows him to experiment more liberally with colour and texture in the background and the clothing of the figure without forsaking the overall success of the composition.
"What is fascinating in the painting process is the process itself: from preparing the tools to cleaning the palette at the end of the session. Nothing compares to the excitement of the first hour in front of an easel: you are so carried away by the motive (or model) that you hardly even look at your canvas".—Yuriy Ushakov
Playful in technique, Yuriy's work pulsates with life. Strong passages of paint are applied to the canvas with exceptionally gestural brushwork invoking the unexpectedness of Nicolai Fechin and even connecting with the AbEx tradition.
