Eugene Lushpin, born in Moscow in November of 1966, is a celebrated contemporary artist whose work graces private collections throughout the United States, Russia and abroad. Greatly influenced by the Russian Realism School, his inspiring paintings of still life and landscape reflect a complex rendering of texture, illusionistic light and an intricate attention to detail.
Recently, the artist’s interests have become more focused on the image of the city. He has a unique gift for capturing the dynamic energy of a crowded sidewalk or the serene mood of a quiet neighborhood. Rooftops are often a prominent subject in much of his work, representing the theme of fairy tales from the artist’s childhood – man rising above everyday problems and the bustle of the world. His brilliant use of color and sharp contrast combined with loose Impressionistic brushstrokes bring a dynamic quality to his impressive artwork.
