Vladimir Ershov was born in Leningrad in 1964. He began learning art at the art middle school at the Academy of Art and from 1987 in the work shop of Boris Ugarov and Victor Reyhet at the Academy of Art. In 1993 Vladimir Ershov became the member of the Artist’s Union. Exhibitions of his personal work took place in our country as well as abroad and some of this artist’s work is kept in museums while some of it is in private collections.
As an artist, Ershov formed his creative skills under the influence of the Russian Realists School of Art. His artwork contains classical traditions and guides the way for further movements. A heightened sense of color, light and rhythm is characteristic to Ershov. In modern realistic art, the painter accounts for dynamism of time and color and the compositional decision of the paintings answer to today’s rhythm of life. The color palette allows to view the canvases as though on two levels: realistic and abstract (composition and harmony of the color splashes). Moreover, the formal experiment is always linked with a realistic theme. The artistic spectrum of the painter is wide; they include landscapes, portraits and genre compositions. The combination of the complete form with a free pastous stroke and the thought-out understatements allow the viewers to enter a world of artistic forms and become an accomplice of the creation; to understand the artist’s thought and develop it in your own way. The exhibition displays landscapes and compositions which were done based on impressions acquired from traveling to Italy, France, Spain, India, Morocco and Japan.
The exhibition will be opened until May 24
