Changing How The World Sees Art

To get more out of looking at and creating art there are two easy-to-learn concepts combined by the masters of painting that have rarely been published together – until now.

Discover simple ideas that are changing how the world sees art, and revealing a visual language that has been hiding in plain sight.

The combination of asymmetrical balance and the brightness/weight illusion is a reintroduction, from the Modernist period, of a way of seeing the world and art like an artist. Like learning to play a musical instrument (or balance a bicycle), it takes practice to coordinate all the parts.

Who is Yuri Tarasov

Yuri Tarasov was one of the strongest painters in the Soviet Union, Russia and Lithuania. While his talent had no borders, Yuri’s fantastic vision and ability to show the true classic Russian art school with a touch of modern European trends made his paintings highly controversial in the Soviet society. As the son of the Head of the Supreme Council of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, he had an opportunity to become one of the best-know artists in the USSR, but Yuri never wanted fame or money, strongly believing that great art must bring recognition and not the other way around. Ignoring the opportunities life gave him, committed only to his art and his family, Yuri Tarasov, nevertheless, became one of the top artists in the entire Soviet Union. The recognition that he so carefully avoided inevitably came to him after each and every one of his exhibitions. His art spoke for itself.

Who is Czeslaw Znamierowski

Czeslaw Znamierowski

Czeslaw Znamierowski was a renowned Soviet Lithuanian painter whose large body of work spanned from the 1920s until the 1970s. During his fifty-year career, he painted over 1,400 landscapes, drew over 800 sketches, and completed over 3,000 artworks. His work is particularly regarded for its featuring of stunning landscapes, some of which cover canvases larger than 8 feet by 4 feet. Due to his affiliation with socialist political movements in Russia, Znamierowski and his work have demonstrated a growing appeal to collectors in foreign markets who hold similar political affinities, particularly China, where his work is reported to have sold for as high as $120,000.
