Tightly, airlessly and malodorously. Walls, coverings
and constraints. Enough! Out! Now! The muscles groan
in fatigue, the face is contorted with anger. It will soon
However, inner voice asks:
- What if I break the box… will I dare??

The Box Series is about life of modern dwellers of big
cities who are caged in their flats, offices, cars, and underground
stations which are compared to boxes.
The painter places these people, naked and uncovered,
into the boxes to explore their reactions and behavior.
Hi everybody, my name is Anton Slich. I am a contemporary and fine artist currently residing in Moscow, Russia. I' ve been doing art since early childhood, thoug painting became my professon not very long ago. It is real plesure to introduce some of my works to you here. The central subject of most of my paitnings is the human figure. I believe that the human body is something that bears great energy and may serve as a universal language of communication between us. As was said in a popular song, "we share the same biology, regardless of ideology". I am open to all kinds of questions and discussion, so feel free to drop me a line. As to my progress and development, firstly, I tried my hand in making sketches and worked a lot with pastel. The change in my technique and manner was inspired by the masters: Picasso converted me to oil, Michelangelo and visiting Capella Sistina revealed the beauty of the human body, Lucien Freud and Francis Bacon helped to discover it as an instrument for exposing human nature and the drama of people's relations. My motto is: "Let's get back to the figure!" My paintings are held in private collections in Russia, the UK and the USA. I hope you will love my works and you will be willing to get back here over and over again!
