Portrait of Charles Bukowski portrait from my series of "Cool dudes". I wanted to capture the famous people, whose life and work influenced my life and my development as an individual. I'm interested in the prose of Bukowski, because it's always the lyrics, the feelings, surrounded by dull, faceless world...
I was born in 1980. Live and work in Vologda, Russia. In the past I have studied architecture and worked as an architect for 10 years. Now I am engaged only in painting. The direction in which I work, I define as "Rodionovskaya painting". This style is a peculiar combination of Russian folk pictures, medieval miniatures, comic strip, poster, and my childhood memories, passions and Hobbies. The choice of subjects for my paintings I can explain what I try to look at the world around us through the eyes of an adult child. Adult, because I already have enough life experience and knowledge, and the child, because I don't want to stop to enjoy what is happening, laugh at him , to make jokes and play pranks. In my work I use tempera and acrylic. The paintings I create on canvas and wooden surfaces. In parallel, I create a painted wooden sculpture in the same style "Rodionovskaya painting".
