I was going to start with an old phrase today: I have the honour of introducing…
Such is the extend of the wow I felt, looking at this man’s body of work. I have been doing this Sunday Matinée colummn for some years now, and in retrospect, I have propably posted a couple of hundred artists already. But only two names really stuck in my mind (Lita Cabellut and János Huszti). As of today I’ll have to add Shulman to this list, I guess.
So, please meet Igor Shulman. Born in Trev, Russia in 1959, then named Igor Adrianov, he studied Interior Design at the Venezianov Art College. In 1999 he went to live in Prague, Czech Republic as Igor Shulman. All the while painting and exhibiting. His favourite style is figurative painting in oil on canvas and he says, he lives by his creativity. Even in his dreams he draws new pictures, finds new decisions, thinks out new realities.
Be prepared to look at lots of pictures today, because I could not make up my mind to leave any out. They are just stunning, I think.
