Unicorn in Labyrinth (2021)
Our days, unicorns are called innovative young companies that have created the world something new, something not yet seen. But behind each such company there is a real person who, with his mind, intuition and knowledge, found a way out in a Labyrinth of many proposals, assumptions and deadlocks.
Life is an amazing thing and you should not underestimate the role of a “little” man, as he, with his unexpected joke or remark, can push you to solve a global problem.
That is why, in the center of the composition, I have drawn a random tourist with a red balloon in his hand, as a symbol of a “little” man.
Единорогами в наше время называют инновативные молодые компании, которые предложили миру что-то новое, что-то еще не виданное. Но за каждой такой компанией есть реальный человек, который своим умом, интуицией и знанием нашел выход в лабиринте множества предложений, предположений и тупиковых ситуаций.
Жизнь удивительная вещь и не стоит недооценивать роль “маленького” человека, так как он своей нечаянной шуткой или замечанием может подтолкнуть вас на решение глобальной проблемы.
Вот поэтому у меня на рисунке в центре композиции нарисован случайный турист с красным воздушным шариком в руке, как символ “маленького” человека.
"I like the literary style of magical realism. I feel the world around me the same way: very objective and unconventional at the same time. Therefore, in my works I like to display real objects of life and try to display the magical pulsation of space. In painting, I mix a few art techniques: somewhere I write a palette knife, sometimes I write with neat voluminous strokes that look like a mosaic, and in some places very carefully I write down the details. Plots of works are taken from my life: a glade of birches near the house at different times of the year and days, a portrait of a beloved man, a self-portrait with a monkey on a shoulder, a village in the snow… It's simple."
