A solo exhibition of 80 painting and 20 graphic works by Andrey N. Bliok, bearer of the honorary title People’s Artist of the Russian Federation, includes such major pieces as “Restoration Artists” (1986) and “Leningrad, Siege. Year 1943” (2015). The display also includes portraits and landscapes of various years and works from the Paris, Venice, and Chinese series by the artist.
Having graduated in 1971from the I. Repin St. Petersburg State Academy Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture where he studied under the guidance of A. Mylnikov in his studio of monumental painting, Andrey Bliok was offered a teaching position at the Institute. He is now a professor in the Painting and Composition Department, having devoted almost 50 years to teaching. His talent as a monumental painter manifested itself with particular brilliance in his works from the 1970s and the later decades when he preferred to create easel paintings. AndreyBliok’s oeuvre takes its origin from the high traditions of the Western European classical art and the Russian realism, transformed by the individual world perception of a painter of today.
