About the artist Andrey Shuvalov
Andrey Shuvalov was born in the city of Ivanovo 31. 03. One thousand nine hundred eighty nine I would like my work to be seen by as many people as possible. I devote all my free time to drawing. This allows me to cope with the difficulties of everyday life, lack of communication and loneliness. In my work, I find the harmony of existence. I work as a teacher of drawing, painting, composition, teaching children of different ages. At school, I teach realistic representation of reality, and in my work I go into the world of fantasy, dissolve in it… I draw the cosmos, fictional realities, the very process of imagination allows you to feel the atmosphere of the world or a state that can not be felt in my real life. In my paintings, I use bright, rich, almost pure colors to get away from the gray everyday life that envelops everyday life. Sometimes I choose a limited color and try to come to color harmony. Sometimes I repeat myself in coloristic solutions, but I try to come up with my own color scheme in each new story. They say that the most valuable thing in a picture is its incompleteness, when the artist gives the viewer the opportunity to come up with his own interpretation of what he saw. I try to complete, finish, bring to a harmonious unity, balance all the components of my stories. This is inherent in my essence, even randomness needs order. Perhaps there is too much in my life that is unclear, unrealized, undisclosed. Therefore, I strive for all possible harmony in painting. Any picture is a self-portrait of its author, revealing the spiritual depth of consciousness. But at the same time, the finished work belongs not only to the Creator, the viewer meeting the image, passing it through his perception, gives the work of art a meaning understandable only to him. Art should be seen, because it is a source of inspiration for moving forward, serves as a bridge among different people and cultures. In my city, Ivanovo, there are very few opportunities to realize your creativity. Few connoisseurs of painting. I don't know the English language. I want to try, find, sell my painting or drawing to art lovers abroad.
