Asturias - North Spain, in the city of Oviedo.
I, as an artist, was lucky enough to work three times in Spain in 1992, 1993 and 1994.
If you look through the eyes of a painter, then, but my Russian is difficult to find a country as beautiful, varied by landscapes and attractive to display.
It so happened that most of the time I spent in Asturias, in northern Spain, where in-kind of Oviedo held my main (three) exhibition at the art gallery "Banko-Bilbao-Vizcaya".
I am a realist, painter of traditional orientation, and I work near the great Spanish painters of the school of painting, especially by Velazquez, El Greco, Goya and Zurbaran.
Realism in art - an international concept, and realism of Velazquez and Goya is different from the realism of Russian artists such as Serov, Vrubel, or purely national features, lifestyle features and household items.
If we talk about modern art in Spain, the greatest impression on me the works of Lopez, Vaquero.
I think the main thing in art - not an abstract, albeit formally beautiful commentary on reality, and her deep reflection. Here, no movies, no photography, no installations are not competitors for the painting, and it does not matter big or small oil paintings watercolor.
It is important that the abstract and the abstract creativity finds no echo in the soul of the spectator and the artist works not only for themselves, but for this viewer.
The more realism can take various in kind, sometimes distant from each other by shape, Swee-fies what is creativity and sim volistov and Surrealists, such as Picasso, Dali, Mathis, Magritte, and some others.
And in the end, the painting continues to live and excite people!
