V. Maloletkov is one of the most outstanding masters of contemporary decorative art in Russia, working at the junction of various types of art and materials. The artist miraculously fuses the love of eternal values, deep knowledge of domestic and world culture, a passionate search and constant experiment with the art form, color and space, which significantly expanded the palette and genre boundaries of this art form, deepened the content of plots and images. The creative range of the master is extremely large and diverse, he is distinguished by a variety of topics, philosophical depth and high professionalism. His works are always emotional and acutely modern, imbued with a poetic worldview.

Among the topics V. Maloletkov is working on is theater, literature, music, history. The art project of the master represents a new attempt to comprehend the problem of the coexistence of a creative person and society on the example of the gallery of images of outstanding figures of world and national culture created by him. Among them are Dante Alighieri, D. Bocaccio, A. Pushkin, A. Akhmatova, M. Tsvetaeva, S. Yesenin, A. Duncan, J. Lennon, P. Bagration, V. Tatlin, which are united by a complex, sometimes tragic fate, painful and contradictory relationships with the outside world. The author of the project uses the language of metaphors, which allows one to consider the fate of a person within a conditional space, sometimes resembling the shape of a vessel or bowl, perceived as a spatial environment for solving complex spiritual and material relations between Man and Nature.
In his work, the master uses a wide palette of plastic, structural, volumetric, spatial and color means, solving this problem with the help of the oldest material on earth - ceramics. The artist successfully works in various ceramic materials: porcelain, biscuit, stone mass, terracotta, chamotte clay and faience, which allows him to create both unique exhibition art objects and works of monumental and decorative art designed for architecture and landscape environment.

The reliefs he co-authored with other artists for the Paleontological Museum of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow are included in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest works of architectural ceramics of the twentieth century.
Among the volumetric-spatial works created by the author in recent times, ceramic plastic in faience is of particular interest. This series features fifty compositions that demonstrate the author’s desire to discover new plastic and color possibilities of exquisite and ancient material. The main hero of the master’s new works, as before, remains a man, a source of the author’s creative aspirations.
Along with ceramics V. Maloletkov for the first time at his personal exhibition shows works made in bronze, confirming his constant desire to search for new materials and means of artistic expression.
An important place in the artist’s work is graphic, which was at first a kind of creative workshop in which new creative ideas and projects were born, and then became an independent type of creativity, allowing the author to realize his interest in portraiture, landscape, still life and complex multi-figure compositions.
