Vladimir Kush

Rich, sensual, colourful, nonsensical.


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 ;-)
