From July 18 to 28, the Moscow House of Artists on Kuznetsky Most 11 will host an exhibition of Nikita Vsevolodovich Medvedev (1950-2018), one of the leading masters of monumental art, Honored Artist of Russia, corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Arts, winner of the Moscow Prize.
The exhibition opens 4 months after his sudden, premature death and is caused by the need to pay tribute to the outstanding artist and the desire of his colleagues and numerous connoisseurs of his work thanks to the magical power of art through his work to meet with his image, with his soul.
His works, clear, precise in their design, built on contrasting color relationships with the finest drawing, were immediately recognized at exhibitions, just as he himself, handsome, was noticeable in any crowd. In his works, the leading role is assigned to color, in paintings he is filled with some kind of inner light.
The exhibition will feature more than 100 works: these are landscapes of the motherland, other countries, portraits of people dear to him, still lifes; a series of works resulting from trips with the blessing of Patriarch Cyril to Mount Athos. A special place in the exposition will be occupied by the last monumental work of the master - the decoration of the Khoroshevskaya metro station.
Here are the words of Nikita Medvedev:
“Painting - infinity, space, artist, constant search, mixer for paints. The colors of the Earth, cobalts, cadmium, the unknown, a mystery that not a single master has revealed, only geniuses came nearer, but did not reveal to the end. It is impossible to understand micron van dyk, micron white, gram ultramarine, etc. Infinity of color, color, tone. It is beyond the power of modern technology: it is a sacrament, feeling, soul, spontaneity. Painting is eternal, she laughs at art historians who claim complacently that the end has come.
No gentlemen, no!
Everything is just beginning, and many more called will come, and it is quite possible that the mystery of color will be revealed and only then will the end come.
Long live the mysterious word - Painting! ”
