I think I might start a new feature on this site where I spot light the works of artists that I enjoy. I did that last weekend on one of my other blogs and it felt great.
So in that vein I’d like to introduce you to the works of Russian Artist Victor Lysakov. I just spent some time on his site looking through his gallery and reading about the artist himself and I’m impressed.
Lysakov’s paintings are vibrant and unique. The colors jump out at you and make a lasting impression. The style is modern expressionist, which as you may already know is often subjective.
Lysakov’s work is different in that a story accompanies each image which allows the viewer to have some insight into the artists muse and the meaning of the painting. His paintings contain images of animals, nature, creatures and other figures. Lysakov says his paintings merely depict life, stating that sometimes the scariest things in live are the most trivial ones. How true is that?
Lysakovic discovered his artistic talent as a young boy in Siberia. He’s now a full time artist who paints almost exclusively in oil or acrylic on canvas. He’s never been classically trained but he did study both Rembrandt’s and Bryullov’s techniques.
He’s pleased to be able to formally introduce his work to the American public. As I mentioned earlier his artwork can be viewed on his site in the gallery section. The paintings displayed in the gallery are being offered for sale. The prints have been replicated in giclée format and are printed on museum quality archival canvas. This material is UV-resistant in order to give each print a long life.
If you enjoy looking at art work please do visit Lysakovic’s website. I think you’ll enjoy viewing this talented artists work and perhaps you might even be moved enough to purchase a print.
