Latyshev

Valerii

RUSSIA

Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“As an artist, I am interested in the relationship between painting technique and our own ways of seeing, our emotional connection with images and fantasies.”

Valerii Latyshev is an artist living and working in Russia. He is a self-taught woodworker and for quite a long time is engaged in inlay on wood making wooden jewelry, accessories, home decor items. Once upon a time, Valerii was happy to draw, but he seemed to have forgotten about it.

Abstract spiral fantasy on a cosmic theme looks like a supernova bang filling the universe with its energy. The drawing is inspired by photos of the Hubble telescope. Unframed. Ships in a hard tube.

But you can say that suddenly he felt a long-standing interest in drawing. He accidentally stumbled upon his old drawings, which awakened pleasant memories in him. He remembered again the sensations when the pencil rustles along the watercolor paper, giving birth to a new space with lines and shapes. A long-standing passion, like a dream, has now become a reality on a qualitatively new level and has turned into an essential part of Valerii's life, inviting him to move in a new exciting direction.

Spiral Of Life

Colorpencil

$400

Botanic themed colorful abstract artwork. The unwinding spiral symbolizes the birth of new positive changes in life. Unframed. Ships in a hard tube.

He still creates inlaid things, but now besides this Valerii makes drawings, paintings, and mixed media artworks. Maybe under the influence of artists in the style of suprematism as well as his own experience in inlay, where lines and figures also play an essential role, Valerii tends to use abstract and geometric shapes in his artworks. Perhaps his artworks are the new Russian avant-garde, who knows.

A spectator can see something completely different in the work with absolutely different associations and a title.

As an artist Valerii is interested in the relationship between painting technique and our own ways of seeing, our emotional connection with images and fantasies. And Valerii wants to express his feelings rather than illustrate them. The painting becomes an experiment that allows him to explore himself deeper, learn more about himself and the world around him.

Globalization has led to the fact that we can wear the same clothes anywhere in the world, live in similar interiors, use the same things. A painting in the interior may be the only unique thing. Therefore, individuality of the painting is self-valuable.

The painting reflects the inner feelings of the artist, which are sometimes logically inexplicable, and the creative process exposes them. That is, painting helps you to realize and experience what you see more deeply, creating a visual product that other people will see. And involuntarily you look at it as if through someone else's eyes, worrying about the clarity of the message of the picture, about the clarity of visual information. Since any, even an abstract painting, carries, in addition to aesthetic content, some kind of message from the author, even if it is not always obvious to everyone.
