  • About the work

Vanitas is a genre of painting, still life, reminiscent of the transience of life, the mandatory attribute of which is the human skull. The objects depicted in the painting have an allegorical meaning: The skull is a reminder of the inevitability of death. Flowers are a symbol of love and sex. Extinguished candle-departure of the human soul. Playing cards or dice are a sign of a mistaken life goal. The smoking pipe is a symbol of fleeting pleasures. Carnival mask-a sign of irresponsible pleasure. Glass ball-a symbol of vanity. Hourglass and mechanical clock - the transience of time. Musical instruments, notes-a symbol of the ephemeral nature of life. Flowers can be interpreted in the same way, and a peeled lemon was, like life, attractive to look at but bitter to taste. 

For Oleg it was difficult to resist contributing to the collection of paintings of this genre, which flourished in the 16th and 17th centuries.

About the Artists

1965 Pushkino, Moscow region, Russian Federation

Oleg likes the classical school of painting, namely academic realism. This style allows him to express his emotions as much as possible and convey his mood to the viewers. The precise outlines of objects, the play of light and shadow, the richness and variety of colors - all this help him create paintings that collectors like.

He works in the style of classical painting, as he believes that this style can achieve maximum technical skills. A well-written picture is always admired by the viewer. He prefers to paint still lifes, landscapes and nudes. He works with oil paints on stretched canvas. Edges are painted in continuity with the painting. Paints based on natural pigments. Paintings have a protective coating against UV, dust and mechanical damage.

About the Gallery


Karlovy Vary, Moravská 1100/34
