"Europa" by Victor Guzeniouk
Art of Victor Guzeniouk

Victor Guzenyuk is a well-known Saint Petersburg graphic artist. The themes of most of his works are related to mythology. The feeling of Nature as a whole, the desire to express “everything in everything” is the reason for the artist’s attachment to satyrs, centaurs and other bizarre creations of the ancients’ fantasy. It seems as though he sees life as a Theater of Metamorphosis. In his works, the desire to convey beauty of living nature is spiritualized by an all-absorbing, almost musical sense of rhythm and composition. It is useless to look for any ambiguity in his works, where pathetics often turns into lyricism, and tragic themes are often interpreted with a fair share of irony… The desire for clarity and expressiveness seems to be one of the reasons for his special attention to the ancient traditions as well as those of the Renaissance, which once nurtured the Russian school, but today, unfortunately, have been lost.
