About the artist
Paul Pokidysheva call a talented painter-monumentalist. He is a follower of the academic, St. Petersburg school of painting. I note that some accuse the painter of imitating Gustav Klimt. Well, if there is an imitation, it's quite worthy. For me, it is better to paint such paintings than to paint red and black squares. Pavel V. Pokidyshev member of the Union of artists of Russia.
