Andrey Remnev, Contemporary Russian painter1

(0 votes)

Contemporary Russian artist Andrey Remnev is a rising superstar on the art scene today. Born in Yakhroma, a small town outside of Moscow, his work is very influenced by traditional Russian icons. One of the reasons for this is that Remnev began his education studying icon painting at the Holy Andronic Monastery in Moscow. The monastery is the home of innumerable Russian Orthodox artworks, many of which were painted by the abbey’s most famous monk and artist, Andrei Rublev (1360-1427). Remnev combines the old with the new in his own unique style to create a statement about our modern world. Just like Russian icon art, Remnev’s work is decorative, colorful and deeply symbolic. “My paintings are distinguished by attention to detail and meticulous decorating, in a traditional Russian style,” he says. Remnev’s work seems very traditional initially with the dresses and costumes worn by his characters. Upon closer inspection you can see elegant additions that propel the piece right into contemporary times.
