This artwork I wrote in the spring, when the emotions of youth bubbling up after a long winter. So the heroes of artwork, I call them kirpichmen or brickmen, is also acting up. They were too tired to stand up for the long winter. They want to stretch their legs. They decide to measure strength, as Russian heroes used to do that with each other.
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".
