Painting is my life, I can't even imagine how it would be possible to live without this amazing and subtle world, where the soul truly lives. Received academic honors, for the best thesis of the year, I can feel quite confidently in various styles, from classical to experiments with a more modern and decorative interpretation. I really love figurative painting, the depiction of a person with his inner world, experiences and aspirations, this for me is the highest achievement in art. I also really love the still life, stylized, decorative, ideally complementing the modern interior in the loft style. Drawing with a pencil or charcoal, as the basis of art, is a favorite technique for me, even during my studies at the academy, I could spend days working on busts and figures of antique sculpture. New York brings a more dynamic understanding and perception of the world, the colors on the canvas are more expressive and brighter. The biggest inspiration for me is my family, wife and children, who every day I go through life's difficulties with me and share the joy of being. I am very optimistic about the future, I look forward to the opening of new exhibitions and symposium.
A favorite object of consciousness, as an ideal repository of stereotypes, is the image of an artist, a kind of bearded man against the backdrop of a huge window in an unchanging velvet beret, who was deeply thoughtful frozen at the canvas with a palette in his hand at the time of birth that had not yet been created by anyone. His world is the interior of the workshop: a lot of finished and “almost finished work” lying on the floor, standing leaning against the wall, waiting for a better time. The picture of the “universe” is completed by the master’s constant companions – canvases, vases with brushes, tubes of paints, jars of solvents. Beautiful, yes … vital. But it’s very stylized … Our story is about the real world of the master of the canvas … But only – for templates ready for the destruction of heart-sweet …
The workshop of the artist-painter Miroslav Duzinkevich quite lived up to my expectations. Randomly scattered leaflets with sketches and sketches, photographs of paintings that have found their buyers, books and albums, wooden frames covered with canvas and an invariable smell of oil paints and fantasies – an atmosphere of “creative mess”, so enveloping with a creative aura that it’s just right to pick up a brush. But the artist “did not fit into the image” – a young and cheerful guy met me. “So customers sometimes react as well,” Miroslav smiled, seeing my confusion. – When they look at the portfolio, they are eager to make an order, but when they see my photos, they start to doubt: “He is so young!” And meanwhile, I began to fulfill orders already about 10 years ago – from the first year of the academy I have a good idea of how to be an artist”.
