I have several childhood memories of paintings in my grandmother’s farmhouse. Paintings I would stare at for hours and wonder what it would be like to walk around inside them. It is a feeling I seldom experience in my grown up years, but when I today came across Russian Realist Painter Evgeny Lushpin I was taken straight back to those memories.
Please let me introduce you:
“Evgeny Lushpin was born in Moscow in 1966. He graduated from Art-graphic department MGPU and Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts. In his oeuvre Evgeniy Lushpin follows the best traditions of representationalism of both Russian and West European pictural art. Preciosity and virtuosic skills, sense of color and form, which are very typical for old masters – Evgeny Lushpin’s paintings have it all. Favorite painters of Evgeny Lushpin are Piter Bruegel, Andrew Wyeth, Hieronymus Bosch and Edward Hopper, whose art is a creativity of imagination, fantasy and high professional skills.” – Excerpt from Lushpin’s website
Here are some examples of his work and you can find more at his website on: http://www.lushpin.com
