Andrei Kimovich Esionov is a recognized Russian artist whose solo exhibitions were held in St. Petersburg (in the Russian Museum), in Moscow (at the Academy of Arts and at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art), in Samara (in the Samara Art Museum) and repeatedly in Europe.
The future artist was born and raised in Tashkent; In 1981 he graduated from the art school as a graphic artist, in 1990 - the picturesque department of the Tashkent State Theater and Art Institute. A. N. Ostrovsky. Already his first independent work immediately attracted attention, but the creative start of Andrey Esionov was postponed by circumstances for two whole decades.
The works presented at the exhibition are made in the watercolor technique, the technique is essentially quiet, even intimate. Watercolor in the performance of the artist, with all his respect for form and tradition, his readiness for dialogue with her, is a medium of contemporary art. The artist’s works are conceptually integral. Behind genre scenes, portrait and typographical characteristics, sharply grasped natural situations, an important content setting, an acute sense of time flowing are noticeable. The large-scale multi-figured paintings by Andrey Esionov are complicated: the narrative is combined with allegory - allegory, biblical themes - with historical ones.
In the portrait genre, the intellectual scale of the personality is important for the artist. The heroes of his portraits are Vladimir Voinovich, Pyotr Todorovsky, Anatoly Karpov, Eldar Ryazanov.
On trips to Europe and the Middle East, he creates genre pictures, writes seemingly textual species situations, but knows how to do what is pictured as a «picturesque incident» in which his life flickers, and it is interesting, like any other life. Esionov-watercolorist can convey the impression of what he saw, for example, the relationship between couples, painted with personal, age, ethnic specifics. Or manifestations of fatigue of an old man, a tourist, a homeless person. Or an internal connection between the owner and the horse in a remarkable series «Horse cart». Or the dynamics of urban life in the Dreams of Snowden. In the artist’s watercolors there is no place for alienation, it is a world of presence. Expressing in many of his things the alarm about attempts to go into virtual reality, Andrey Yesionov appreciates the world of direct communication.
Watercolor - with all the variety of genre problems - this means to maintain a balance of thoughtful and «observed.» Watercolor, figuratively speaking, helps to «hold onto the ground» - to maintain the immediacy and relevance of the perception of the world. Outwardly artless, as if unpretentious natural, mobile, mobile watercolors by Andrey Esionov reveal the important moments of modern life.
Andrey Kimovich Esionov is awarded with the honors of the Russian Academy of Arts and the Russian Academy of Arts, is a laureate and winner of a number of prestigious international arts festivals. Yesinov is a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Arts, the Creative Union of Artists of Russia, the Union of Artists of Russia, the Moscow Union of Artists of the International Art Fund.
