Vladimir Kush

Rich, sensual, colourful, nonsensical.

Current

When we were in Las Vegas on honeymoon we walked through the Desert Passage shops and I saw a gallery with the strangest paintings in. The second time I went in I remembered to take a note of the artist: Vladimir Kush. I love these kind of impossible landscapes and I like that they're painted to look real: abstract and impressionist art can be very powerful but I like paintings that look photorealistic. I expect photography has pushed painters away from competing with the camera lens.


You couldn't photograph this though!

The official site has a great selection of images but the thumbnail page for this gallery is an easier way to get an idea of his style because the official site has no navigation between images except the Back button.


And there was so little on Wikipedia I felt compelled to update the article a bit ;-)

The first one's lovely. It reminds me of a picture of a carpeted forest glade, where the weave runs right up to the boles of the trees

I realy love surrealist art, especialy mathematical surrealism like Escher. Weird, really, because any art I do I get pissed off with myself because it is not realistic enough and I prefer to do photography for that very reason!

there's controlled surrealism and not quite creating what you saw in your head on paper ;-) I love Escher's work, because it's both precise and perfect and utterly imposible

If you're interested that sort of work, check out Jacek Yerka, a Polish surrealist. I like his stuff a lot.
