Vladimir Zagarov – Yellow Movement

01.09.2016 – 15.10.2016

Overview

I guess, any curious and sincere viewer, irrespective of origin, religious beliefs and art accomplishment, is able to get close to Vladimir Zagorov’s world, get into its spirit, to live in it. – Aleksey Boyko (professor, art critic, curator and author).

Graham’s Fine Art Gallery is proud to present the solo exhibition, ‘Yellow Movement’ by abstract artist, Vladimir Zagorov.

An extract from a catalogue, written by Aleksey Boyko, for an exhibition at the State Russian Museum (St Petersburg) describes Zagorov’s ‘Yellow Movement’ as such: “…we find once more the ‘sunny mood’, the reception of the sun, the world with the sun, the bright Universe. Yet the sun here is not a source, but a lense, focusing those streams directed towards us from beyond its borders. An essentially similar thought process led Abbot Suger to the theory of divine light, influencing the architecture of Gothic cathedrals, sanctioning the broad use of stained-glass. And the experiments of Vladimir Zagorov seek to acquire a spatial dimension in which man could fully join the yellow movement…” 

Born in 1951, in southern Russia, Zagorov graduated from the I Repin St Petersburg State Academy Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture (Russia’s highest art academic university). During this time he worked under the acclaimed authority of Andrei Mylnikov. 

Zagorov is considered a ‘universal’ artist because of his creative scope that includes, abstract and figurative painting, art-objects, drawings, book design and monumental-applied art.

His artworks can be seen across collections in Europe, most notably in the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg.
