Back in russian surrealism… After Vladimir Kush, I want to introduce you an other russian painter : Michael Cheval (born Mikhail Hohlachev in 1966).
In fact I must not speak about surrealism as he claims to be the painter of the absurd. He finds in absurd what can not be found in reality.
With several series : “Nature of absurdity”, “Eternity of absurdity”, “Illusions of absurdity”, “Reality of absurdity”, “Sense of absurdity” but also portraits and drawings ; Michael Cheval imposes himself as the master of absurdity.
We enter his world like a fairy tail.
I would say he is the poet of absurdity.
A real sense of colors, associations, symbols…
A complex art …
A philosophic art … a deviation of meaning…
A genial art !
Absurd beauty !
