Igor Dremin: Exhibition of Chichigin automatic translate
From 12 to 24 January 2015, an exhibition of the Moscow artist Alexander Albertovich Chichigin takes place in the exhibition hall of the Association of Painters of the Ministry of Agriculture on the 1st Tverskaya-Yamskaya, 20.
Alexander Chichigin was born in 1956 in the village of Kultuk, Irkutsk region. In 1979 he graduated from the Art and Graphic Department of Khabarovsk Pedagogical Institute. In 1980 he began to engage in professional creative activity.
The art of Alexander Chichigin is not limited to a specific theme. The artist is characterized by genre and thematic diversity. He is interested in the world in all its manifestations. The only thing that unites his paintings is an artistic form, which in his works is not only a means and means of depiction, but also a content. It is not for nothing that the favorite genre of the artist is still life, which allows focusing on form-building.
Do not leave the artist indifferent and the events taking place in the world. The painting «Save and Preserve» was written by him in memory of the Beslan tragedy. This canvas reflected sorrow for all victims of terrorist attacks and local wars. This is not just a picture; it is a picture-prayer, an appeal to God for the salvation and preservation of this world. In the painting «4 times of life» the main stages of a person’s life have found their embodiment: childhood, mature life, translated into the cross, death in the form of a crucifixion and the main stage - resurrection and ascension.
Openness to all manifestations of life and love of artistic form is the basis of the personality of Alexander Chichigin as a man and an artist.
