Petrov sees the picture from far above and in the most expressive colours
“Mark Petrov’s story takes a special page in Leningrad mythology: it’s about the personal choice of “little man” who alone or with a few friends confronts coercion as social life basis. What’s important is that this confrontation is aesthetical only. Artist’s mission is to reveal the beauty of the world and thus bring harmony to society.
Petrov sees the picture from far above and in the most expressive colours. Semantic monumentalism of his works approaches pictogram clarity. He is to portray the ornamental rhythm of the world, it’s initial beauty”.
