Aleksey Apollonov is one of most impressive representatives of
the contemporary Ukrainian fine arts. His art works are hardly
possible to definitely attribute to some particular style or trend.
The style of his paintings is always individual and recognizable
though every time it remains within the framework of the figurative
paintings. Each time the artist states a new problem for himself
and interprets it in his particular manner.
Thus in 'Windows', one of the series of his paintings his creative
method is reduced to minimum and finds its articulation thanks
to the expressive reverberation of color and its laconic composition.
In the series of his monotypes united under the title "Hunting"
archetypal 'rock paintings' change into a rejoicing ritual feast
with bulls and archers against bright and colorful background.
Moreover, Aleksey Apollonov's landscapes most often communicate
the author's longing for the sea. A sight to the seashore is observed
from the window, while we find a big seashell left by the artist
on the windowsill. We are fascinated both by the quiet and storming
sea, and the silhouettes of the night boats lingering in the darkness.
