He is a laureate and winner of art competitions. His paintings are in many
His paintings are in many private collections in Russia and abroad.
The artist's work is built on admiration
of female and male images, from portraits to drawings of nudes.
Playing with different lines, shapes and colours he tries to capture and convey
a characteristic sensuality and subtle artistic aesthetic.
"I have always been interested in the human being, and
visual art is one of the best forms of exploring, interpreting and
and expression of what I see and feel in people."
In addition, Fomin also explores symbolism and
metaphorical meaning in his work.

He most often paints in pastel on primed
Canvas or charcoal on paper in an expressive authorial manner reflecting his
personal, vivid emotionality. Fomin sees beauty and creates it in his works
with precise, lively line, shimmering stain, emotive colour and expressive
textures. He uses gold and sauce in his work, an unusual national material,
which has interesting qualities - it can be painted like a bed and like a
with watercolour, with a brush and water. It's a classic academic material,
a favourite at the Academy of Arts. ARTIST
STATEMENT

The subject of my work is life and myths, people, all
together...

I mainly portray people - women and
Men, often naked, in their natural state. I believe that every body
body is beautiful, has unique features and its own individual
aesthetics. I create portraits by delving into and studying the personality of the model,
I try to express the characteristic external and internal, personal traits, to reveal
the beauty I see in every person. In my work I try to convey
eternal beauty with classical and modern techniques in graphics. I think about
artistic understanding of characters and states, emotionally expressed
through the body.

Sources of inspiration for me are everywhere! Я
I observe the world, the events, what's going on around me. I read books and
I look for patterns, I look for stories that inspire me. Я
I write it down, my thoughts, my reflections in a personal diary and use it all in
in my work.
I love poetry, literature and history - it's
an endless source of inspiration!

I wish the person who looks at my work
at my work, a ringing silence inside... Silence is where
we all come from...

There are artists who fascinate me and in some way
influence my work in some way. Of the artists of the past, these are: the great
Rembrandt, Nikolai Feshin, Mikhail Vrubel, I'm impressed by their emotionality,
expressiveness and craftsmanship, subtle psychologism of images! Of the drawings, I like the Albrecht
I most like Albrecht Dürer and Aubrey Beardsley with their filigree and expressive
details, intricate images and meanings. Of my contemporaries, one of those who
I respect Nikolai Blokhin, a connoisseur of human character.
