Vladimir defines the whole direction in modern painting. His artworks can be characterized as very emotional and vivid, able to depict the artist’s mood. The Sevastopol small streets, bays and boats are the main characters of artist’s works. All of them create an image of “ The Sevastopol Venice”. Vladimir travels all over the Crimea. His nature in all seasons and, certainly, the sea with rough coastal stones and salty splashes of surf can really inspire. Fishermen at their launches, sea surf, beauty of Crimea attracts the artist and forces to take up the brush.
