Breath of Wind by Andrew Manaylo(60 views)
Description: Glorious abstract still life of peonies, brush work and palette knife give this painting energy and drama. Andrew Manaylo is a ruthenian artist from Subcarpathia (Ukraine). Was born in 1970 in a painter dynasty family. His ascendants ? grandfather Fedor and father Ivan ? achieved significant place in the art life of the region. Andrew built not only upon an unique art school of his predecessors, but also on top-ranked professional artist-qualifying institutions such as the Russian Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg. Andre is actively involved in numerous international art-symposiums. ?There is something deeply intense and critical in personal sensibilities and modalities of Andrew Manaylo?s artworks and expressions. His art somehow manages to muse and fuse the classical and the modern, the flat and the defined - it is personal biography meets movement, passion and a very physiological presence. Exhibiting an impeccable instinct for the emotionally evocative power of color, movement, texture, and shape, his creative work relates more to a state of mind, mood or feeling, than a tangible object. Amidst a sea of art, Andrew Manaylo manage to say something very different.? Nikita D.
