Vladimir Davydenko, Hyper-Realism Landscape Master Artist, born in 1966 in Lipetsk, Russia is a proud member of the Union of Artists of Russia. He is a regular participant of regional, and Russian exhibitions and his works are displayed in private collections in many European countries. The works of the artist, who is a supporter of realistic painting, always evoke a lively response from fans and connoisseurs of art.
Vladimir’s paintings are distinguished by a clear plot and as close as possible to reality and he manages to depict with amazing accuracy the changing state of nature. He paints his landscapes without leaving the studio, from memory and to paint a landscape, artists tend to go out into nature and make sketches for a future painting. For Vladimir such a preparatory stages are insignificant. Although he does not refuse from nature, he uses his amazing visual memory and his amazing pieces always accurately depict the color scheme of snow, clouds, and water.
Vladimir often turns to the experience of the great masters of the past in his work. He believes that the rule of the golden section, as well as other achievements of Renaissance artists have not been abolished and there are time-tested landmarks on which to be equaled. Careful study of details is visible in his work the artist and in portraits, and in genre paintings, which are for him favorite.
There is a theme in the artist’s work, which is filled with special internal content for him and Vladimir has created a portrait gallery of Russian monasticism. In 2000, Vladimir painted the painting “Two Monks”, which was exhibited in Moscow at the All-Russian Art Exhibition dedicated to the 2000th anniversary of Christianity.
If this work evokes a minor mood and is imbued with philosophical reflection on the frailty of life, then Vladimir’s new work “The Joy of Life” is optimistic and corresponds to the inner mood of the artist. In December 2009, a painting portrait of Patriarch Alexis II was presented by the him to the current head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, and placed in the Museum of Alexia II in the Church of Christ the Savior.
“Everyone is like a universe – complex and mysterious to infinity,” says Vladimir. And so he wants to achieve in portraits maximum psychology as he’d like to believe that’s how it’s going to be.
