I work in impressionistic stile using alla prima technique with focus on fine art nudes, landscapes and still life. My stile is influenced by the Russian/Ukrainian painting tradition, with some input from western European art, as I have spent the recent years in Denmark and Germany. In my paintings I seek to capture the mood, atmosphere and the very first spontaneous impression of the motive. In my finished paintings I try to keep the freshness, spontaneity and directness of the first sketch. I use the impasto technique where dynamic and heavy brushstrokes not only give texture to the painting surface, but also emphasize the powerful, spontaneous and unmodified expression I try to achieve.
Biography: I'm a Russian/Ukrainian artist living in Denmark.
