Safonkin Viktor



Description :



“Safonkin, on the other hand, is a man of our day, with its new, changed conditions for the creative work of artists. He does not adapt Verism, but uses it as the basis for his own style. The world to which he introduces us is also a world of visions - but visions that are true for the 21st century.

The astonishing aspect is that he uses means derived from previous periods to implement his concept. Safonkin is a painter, who creates a visionary world in the traditional manner, with paintbrush and canvas, with glazing and trompe l'oeil, and thus conjures a world that is in direct competition with cinema, video installations or computer animation.

Yet he can hold his own in this comparison because he is a master at his art. Safonkin convinces by means of the stunning materiality of his paintings. Iron appears like iron; the depicted heat and cold are almost tangible.

It is not only the colour, it is the suggestive power of the colour that creates or reinforces these impressions - in short the beholder feels drawn into this world of images in a synesthetic manner and experiences a visionary power that is difficult to withstand.



In this universe, our intellectual distance provides only scant protection. It is the cosmos of our nightmares and wildest dreams. Upon waking up, we can hardly believe that the chimeras we saw in our dreams exist in real life; yet we know that the emotions that gave birth to such dream images are within us. These dream apparitions represent strong feelings that have a much greater impact on our behaviour than we would like to admit.”



Dr.Phil. Helmut Orpel, art critic, Germany





“Safonkin's paintings sometimes carry a sarcastic note - not about the art itself in order to distance himself from the employed techniques and the central message of his work. His visualised sarcasm is directed at the absurdity of life.

His visualised sarcasm is directed at the absurdity of life. Whenever he consciously proceeds in a historicist and eclectic manner, he seeks to create an assimilation with contemporary issues and reveals a creative commitment to a critical iconographic tradition.

    Gregory Dembowski

    The Response, 120 x 100 cm, oil on canvas

    Doctor of art, Professor of International academy of architectur ,Gregory Dembowski was born in Moscow in 1955. In 1971 he graduated from Moscow school of art No.2, and in 1978 – Moscow artistic-industrial academy (Stroganoff).

    He first exhibited his works at the 10th Youth exhibition in 1974. In 1977-1978 he took place in the All-Union art exhibition Moscow-Minsk and Moscow Youth exhibition.

    In 1977, Gregory was doing the artworks in the International Youth Center in Rostov Veliky. There was a meeting with the American folk music group. Group members suggested Gregory organize his art-tour around the United States and exhibitions in America. But the KGB forbade all contact with the Americans, under penalty of dismissal from the University and exile in Siberia.In 1978 he graduated from the institute and entered the painting section of Moscow association of artists.

    In 1980 the painting "Soldiers," written by Gregory after one and a half years in the army, was removed by the authorities directly during the exposure time of 15 youth exhibition in Moscow.

    Thereafter, Gregory started designing interiors and painting in architecture.

    Since 1980 he worked at Russian integrated plant of monumental decorative art. He completed the following works: relief in the hall of the plant “Isolator”, Moscow, relief with porcelain in the city of Odintsovo, ceramics in the CIMI institute, Moscow, porcelains in “Seleznevskiye” baths, Moscow, Florentine porcelain and Rome porcelain on the foreside of “Shakhter” sanatorium in Melekhovskaya village, the city of Shakhty, and others.

    In 1984, Gregory's Roman mosaics «The Road" won the first prize in the international competition of mosaics.

    But the leadership of the Union of Artists of the USSR sent to Ravenna, Italy another artist, who was more trusted.

    In 1990 and 1991 there were two personal exhibitions in Central Artisis House, Moscow, in 1992 – personal exhibition at the same place together with Irina Orlova-Dembowski.

    His works were acquired by Ministry for culture of the USSR and Russia, and are placed in the Moscow Museum of modern art, and also in the other Russian museums and private collections allover the world. Gregory Dembowski took part in many foreign exhibitions, including the auction of Soviet painting in 1991 in Chicago (USA) and exhibition in the Madrid Museum of modern art (Del Arto Contemporanio) in 1991.

    In 1995-97 Gregory published his works in the Internet. And the letter from the Museum MOMA USA was received where was a proposal to submit to the museum catalog to be considered for a personal exhibition. But in those years, the family of Dembowski was in abject poverty and did not have any resources to publish catalogue or to send it to the United States.. He designed a range of interiors in public and private buildings, his works were many times shown on TV. He is a constant participant of international exhibitions, the participant of international artistic fair in Geneva.

    In 2007 he was living and working in Paris, where he completed two series of paintings "Windows" and "Flight of the Angel".

    In 2007 Gregory Dembowski was titled with the international professional ra
