Kirill Arkadyev @kirillgera
Kirill Gera Arkadyev born in 1983 is an artist/graphic artist.
He was born in Moldova, grew up in Kazakhstan, currently lives and works in Moscow.
He has devoted more than 15 years to the fine arts. The main thing for him was to find his own unique style in the art. He has been interested in working with multi-meanings, riddles.
Accordingly, he began to strive for this.
Many works contain several levels of understanding (symbolism) and depending on the desire of the viewer, everyone can see an interesting/readable part for him.
He has been exhibiting since 2007 in Russia, Italy, Holland, South Korea, Armenia, Cuba, Serbia. He is an active member of the Eurasian Union of Artists.
Works are in private collections and museums:
UNEAC (National Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba, Cuba, Matanzas);
IEC “Museum Mods” (Gostiny Dvor, Moscow).
First of all, in my art, I explore human nature. Thoughts, feelings, and reactions of a person to the issue I have chosen. Sometimes, this statement can be about a particular feeling or a set of feelings. I independently studied psychology (based on the works of L. S. Vygotsky) and was particularly interested in nonverbal psychology. This is how I started my career as an artist by trying to portray reactions artistically.
I chose symbolism, surrealism, and avant-garde as the main tools, a kind of foundation on which I tried to create my own, unique style. And mostly graphics, because I like its accuracy. Also, I am somewhat excited about the irremediability of the graphics. In contrast to painting, in graphic work (thought out storyline and figuratively) there are moments where I can make an irreparable mistake. So every work, for me, is to some extent a risk, a game of fragility.
Often, one of the tools I choose is a gel pen. Because with it, you can create a texture in the spots that I paint over. The direction of the stroke, the grooves on the paper, all have a compositional meaning. Unfortunately, this can only be seen live. The photo does not convey this well.
I strive to ensure that the viewer can follow the composition inside the work so that it attracts him and creates movement. For example, in the work "Dances of the Spirit", the composition leads the viewer from the lower-left corner directly to the upper right, then collapses down and smoothly returns to the beginning.
To sum up, I try to dissect the emotionality of people with my work and make sure that each work is not unambiguous in its meaning. So that the viewer can repeatedly re-open it and enjoy these discoveries.
