In the halls of the Russian Academy of Arts (Prechistenka, 21), an exhibition of works by the honored artist of the Russian Federation, academician of the Russian Academy of Arts Vasily Alexandrovich Bubnov, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the master, will open.
Vasily Aleksandrovich Bubnov is one of the leading masters of Russian fine art, a famous painter, graphic artist, monumentalist, participant of numerous exhibitions in our country and abroad. His works are presented in the collections of many Russian and foreign museums, art galleries, in private collections. Expressive compositional solutions, dynamic design, bright colors create the unique style that distinguishes the work of this wonderful master.
The exhibition will comprise about 120 works created over the past decade: easel painting, graphics. Many graphic works performed in foreign trips to France, Greece, Uruguay, are combined in extensive cycles. Easel works are devoted to topics of public importance, often relevant today, such as, for example, the beginning renovation in Moscow. Many works are connected with personal impressions of various historical places of Russia. For example, living in the summer near the city of Istra, the author dealt with the theme of historical events that took place there during the era of Patriarch Nikon and more ancient times. The theme is reflected in graphic cycles and in easel compositions.
The exhibition also presents a number of canvases, which were the prototype of the compositions that became the decoration of the Petrovsky Park metro station, which opens in Moscow in early 2018. “This place is extremely close to me for the simple reason that I have lived in this area all my life and it was very interesting and important for me to somehow reflect these historical places in my work,” the artist notes. “Thus, the happy coincidence of work on the metro station made it possible to transform the materials that I have accumulated over the course of a dozen years into monumental compositions for Petrovsky Park and at the same time show their easel prototypes at my anniversary exhibition.”
