I know that painting changes the World. I’m happy to be art and part in it.
Hello! My name is Leo Schteinberg. I'm a surrealist artist, living and working in Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
I’m an artist who cares about the subject of love, the role and place of the modern woman in the world and the freedom.
I create my works very emotionally. Strong emotions and feelings make me have a dialogue with other people and myself through the art.
The idea of knowing love and the possibility to let it out on a painting is very important to me. I feel that I need to speak up in these questions.
My goal is to make a spectator feel the freedom inside through my artworks. To think, to talk and to choose freely.
In my paintings I attach high importance to the color. I prefer deep, contrast and laconic colors.
I use acrylic very often, sometimes prefer oil paint. Acrylic dense and compact smears and its ability to become dry very quickly is important for me, when I create a work “a la prima” very fast. Viscosity and multilayer of painting in oil gives me a chance of continuous thinking during the process of creation. Also, I work with watercolor paint and thick watercolor paper. I love to watch its magic when one color flows through another one and creates transparency.
The storyline of my artworks is always a symbiosis of inner emotional experience and my personal, subjective opinion on one or another subject.
Through art I want to understand myself, the world and tell everyone my story.
My paintings are in private collections around the world: Russia, Ukraine, USA, Spain, Belgium, France, Germany, Indonesia, Belgium, Belorussia.
Thank you for visiting! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
With love, Leo
