Paintings are like music melodies, they create rhythm and harmony. It is a symphony, where shapes and sounds gradually convert into each other and became one. Inspiration comes to me from the play of light, rivers, sky, emotions and gestures- from unique moments of live.
In Vladimir's eyes painting is also meant "poetic" rendering of his subject. His brush strokes is a source of vitality or implement dramatic lyricism. Special relation between lines and masses which make it work of art are the creative expression of an emotion.
