There are moments in art which, just like in life, are so impressive they send a chill down your spine, while others are so bland that you forget them within minutes. But there are also paintings which you can stare at endlessly and still never completely figure out. Vladimir Kush’s works without a doubt belong to this category.
While Vladimir was born in Moscow and studied art there, Russia had no use for his surrealism at the time and the artist emigrated to the US. A French businessman happened to notice Vladimir’s work and was so impressed that he funded an exhibition for the artist in Hong Kong. After this initial break, Kush attracted serious attention on the world stage.
He now has four personal galleries in the US and is recognized as a master of surrealism. There is something compelling in every one of his works; it’s as if they are lit from within, creating the impression that the viewer is completely immersed and present in the painting. AdMe.ru chose a few of Vladimir Kush’s most impressive works that irresistibly draw the eyes of the viewer in. Read the original Russian of this short article here.
