Vladimir Finkilshteyn

View Vladimir Finkilshteyn's Gallery


My name is Vladimir Finkilshteyn. I'm a professional painter. Some art critics call me a surrealist, and I don't argue with them. My paintings are figurative and hyper realistic; They appeal to people's sub consciousness, their deepest dreams, delirium and imagination.
I was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in 1960. Upon finishing school in 1977, I entered the Tashkent State Pedagogical Institute, Art and Graphic Department. In 1981 I transferred to the Tashkent Institute of Theatre and Arts, from which I graduated in 1986. After my army service, I became a teacher of drawing, painting, composition and history of art at the Children' Art SchoIt in 1988. From that time until now I teach students and at the same time create my canvases. My paintings and graphic lists were presented in a large number of exhibitions at the Central Exhibition Hall, the House of Cinema Hall, and the Uzbek-American Demonstration Hall "Invariant" and others. My activity as a painter and as a teacher was reflected in local newspapers. Some of my canvases belong now to private collections both in Uzbekistan and abroad.
My creativity isn't symbolistic. It's useless to try to explain each object as a concrete symbol with a concrete meaning. Like music, it recalls a spectrum of different moods and associations. And every person's impression won't be analogous to that of his neighbour. Each real piece of art has to have a certain part of enigma in it. When everything's told and understandable, it isn't an art but minutes. At last but not at least, I'd like to point out that every painting holds an energetic message in itself and sensitive people are always open for such kind of messages.
