In Koktebel, artists created a painting in real time
As part of the “Art Weekend with Wave: Art. Sea. Music» for the 120th anniversary of Koktebel, artists Daria Tsybulko and Vladimir Potemkin created a picture in real time. This was the first time such an unusual art event took place here. Everyone was able to watch how the mesmerizing foothills of the Kara-Dag emerge from under the brush of the masters.
The participants of the 21st plein air “Koktebel-2023” worked on the work of painting as part of the 21st International Scientific and Creative Symposium “Voloshin September”, the results of which were summed up on September 15. This symposium is annually organized by the historical, cultural, memorial museum-reserve “Cimmeria M. A. Voloshin” under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Crimea.
21-year-old Daria Tsybulko is a 4th year student at the St. Petersburg Repin Academy of Arts, a multiple winner of international plein airs and a participant in the Voloshin September. Together with Daria, she worked with her venerable colleague Vladimir Potemkin, an Honored Artist of the Russian Federation and a member of the Union of Artists of Russia, which has more than 200 exhibitions in its arsenal. In 1990, at the World Exhibition in Tokyo, his paintings were exhibited in the same room along with Picasso, Chagall, Gauguin, Matisse, and Van Gogh. Over the past seven years, plein air painting has been active throughout the country.
The finished canvas was solemnly donated to the new kindergarten in Koktebel.
