Still Life by Viktor Bychkov


Recently I have seen paintings by Viktor Bychkov whose works were new to me. The artist works in various genres: portrait, still life, art landscape. I wanted to show you some of his still life and landscapes, that I liked more.


Viktor Bychkov was born in 1956 in town of Kovrov and was graduated from Saint Petersburg Art Academy in 1988.
 

He was a participant of many art exhibitions among them:
Joint art exhibition in Emeryville ,USA, California, 1992.
“EXPO-92”, Spain, 1992.
Exhibition of Russian Art Academy, St. Petersburg, Moscow, Kazan, Krasnoyarsk, Russia 1995.
Exhibition “Seven Artists”, Vladimir, Russia 1997. 


Viktor Bychkov's works can be found in state museums of Russia, more of 50 art pieces are in private collections in a number of countries all over the world.


What is your opinion about such realistic art? Perhaps it reminds you somewhat a photo?  
Or a photo can not replace realistic art?

  1. So beautiful Nadezda, I really can´t choose the one I like best. May be the first one or the third or the landscape, they are all very pretty.

  3. I like the first two the best! It reminds me of vases with flowers in my parents home. So a little nostalgic. Groetjes

  4. It is similar to a photo but more ideal, I think. It's very pretty. I like the landscapes too.

  8. They are so lovely! Yes, very realistic, but still much warmer and more intimate than any photo can be.

    1. I agree a photo fixes a fact and a painter expresses his feelings.

  10. Thank you for the interesting post, Nadezda! I like these paintings because they are beautiful and they evoke feelings and memories and hopes. I think a good painting is better than most photos, but also, a good photo can express very many things.

    1. A photo and a painting are two sides of art. They both reflect author's feelings.

  11. Did he paint all those? Or did he just create the pieces and then took pictures? Whatever he did -- absolutely beautiful. I really like all the vase arrangements.

    1. Michelle, he does paints all these paintings, they are oil on canvas. The vases are pretty, you're right.

  12. A realistic painting always bares the mark of the artist who painted it. I don't think it is as mechanical as a photo. Thanks for introducing me to an artist whose work I was unfamiliar with.

  13. Hello Nadezda!!!!
    Stunning images. I am happy that I met him.

    Greetings.

  14. I like the daintiness of the lily-of-the-valley. Such finely painted flowers and stems. Also, I like the winter scene with lake. I think a painting has more feeling and warmth than a photograph, which is flat in comparison.
    Thank you for sharing these lovely paintings, Nadezda.

  15. I am not familiar with Viktor Bychkov, and am not concerned with critics who feel that it is too representative of photographs. I just know that I like it.

  19. I love all of these beautiful paintings. The way he captures the winter light in the north in the picture of the snow-covered scene with the church is very nice. That one and the samovar picture make me homesick. There is something special in each of these pictures. A very talented artist, indeed. Thank you for introducing him to us!
