"Glass of the city" by Mansur Boybekov. Idea. The city can be perceived in different ways. For some, it appears to be a heavy gray block of concrete, especially if it is a metropolis full of skyscrapers under construction and construction. For others, it first of all appears as a swirling river with streams of crowds of people. For those who live in small sparsely populated cities, they can be presented as a cozy and quiet place. For me, the city is primarily air. You probably have heard of artists painting the air. So I also always try to see the air first, and then the objects. How can you see the air you ask if it is transparent and omnipresent? The whole point is that the air perfectly reflects the light. The color of objects dissolves in the air. It was under the impression of this effect that I painted the picture “Glass of the city”. It was very sunny that day, and the sky was clear and bright blue. The white buildings that we are in most of the city turned golden yellow due to the bright sun, and the sky gave the surrounding air a bright blue color. I love to remember that day, especially in bad weather. May the painting “Glass of the city” bring you memories of your sunny and cloudless day!
