Looking at his work, immediately recalled the words of Claude Monet: "I have two heroes - light and color." Pictures of russian artist Alexey Chernigin are distinguished by special warmth. They are charming, gentle and very sensual, and they are attracted to their views. A special place in his work is occupied by female images: light and attractive, frank and passionate, evoking a smile and exciting imagination. Alexey Chernigin believes that in painting there is an inexplicable internal energy that is ready to break out, overcoming the two-dimensionality and other limits. In his opinion, in the visual arts must be present some magic, which makes the pictures alive and incomprehensible. We decided to tell more about this contemporary artist. Special correspondent of the creative almanac Artifex Alina Krotkaya talked with him personally.
