Romantic female portraits of a Moscow artist who combined French art Nouveau and Russian realism
Captivating, sentimental, romantic, sensual, graceful, magical, fabulous, divine, incomprehensible, mysterious, charming, mysterious… and this is not the entire list of epithets that can be said about the heroines of paintings by the Moscow artist Vladimir Mukhin. Only an inspired male artist could see and so masterfully create in color all the above-mentioned qualities of the women portrayed.
The theme of women in painting is an eternal burning theme. The feminine principle and sensuality, tenderness and awe, sung by masters of different eras, do not leave indifferent the present. This is confirmed by a huge number of virtual galleries, author’s sites, and blogs hosted on the world wide web.
And among all the creative research, the works of Muscovite Vladimir Mukhin stand out very significantly. His stunning portraits of women in the style of French modernism and Russian realism, admire and originality, and originality, and spirituality. Looking at the gallery of his works, we are once again convinced that nothing can catch the viewer in painting so much as the personal feelings of the artist himself, experienced and experienced to their images.
Analyzing the artist’s work, many art historians believe that the identity reflected in both the style and manner of Vladimir is unique and completely new for modern Russian art. Therefore, Mukhin is often called a bright representative and successor of art Nouveau, despite the fact that he very often uses elements of realism in his work.
I would like to emphasize that the master mastered the technique of combining these two seemingly incongruous trends in painting, namely French modernism and the main traditions of academic Russian fine art, found his author’s face, inimitable manner and artistic style in painting portraits of girls and women, genre scenes in interiors and in the bosom of nature.
Bright and dynamic creations of the Moscow artist delight the viewer from the first moment with their extraordinary technique, color, refinement of lines, light-and-shadow and compositional solutions, positive energy, subtle lyricism and theatricality.
In addition, the artist’s painting technique is rich in texture and color palette, and portrait images are devoid of the typical monotony and “hackneyed” subjects for many masters. Everything is fresh, new and original, as well as built on contrasts of both color and composition. By the way, the contrast in the work of the master and the female images themselves-meek and self-confident, tender and sensual… and all of them are equally interesting to the viewer.
What is interesting is that Vladimir Mukhin writes his works on large canvases, some of them sometimes reach the size of two meters. You can only imagine how in reality the viewer is impressed by the textured texture and bright color on his large-scale canvases… it is Difficult to imagine a spectacle, it should only be seen firsthand.
“Art is something elusive, out of time and out of space. Art gives you the opportunity to feel like a person of the World…. In the process of creating a work, I absorb colors, sounds, and smells, and then fix these feelings in colors, using brushstrokes to convey the beauty, warmth and tenderness, and at the same time the reality of their experiences. This is Art. This is the meaning of creativity,” says Vladimir Mukhin, who has achieved international recognition for his work, giving interviews to journalists.
