Izya. Shlosberg graduated from the Moscow University of Art, and the Belarus Institute of Technology in Minsk. Mr. Shlosberg combines his technical training in industrial design and independent study of form and color to give him a unique perspective on the concept of art.
Style: Mr. Shlosberg is a prolific, avant-garde artist. He combines his technical training in industrial design with his training in fine art. His independent vision of form and color gives him a unique perspective on the concept of art. His preferences range from the surrealism of De' Kiriko and Magritte to the romanticism of Chagall, Breygel, and Klimt. However, Mr. Shlosberg tries to take the concept of painting to a higher degree. He thinks about painting as a tool or method for understanding the world. Just as most people see the world in terms of philosophy, physics, and math, Mr. Shlosberg uses intuition, reflection, and the subconscious. The human and global complexity presented in his work defies formulaic understanding. Every painting is a breakthrough emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually. His techniques create an expression of profound depth and spirit in each painting. In his work, Mr. Shlosberg presents his innovative and unique concept of the physical and spiritual views of humankind and the world. Mr. Shlosberg's distinctive contribution to the world of art - three dimensional works - is his trademark. These original creations not only use traditional elements such as color and form, but also different materials to add depth and texture to conventional two-dimensional oil paintings.
