Still-life in Moonlight
Maxim Bondarenko, based in Sacramento CA, is an artist who creates paintings, drawings, and mixed media pieces by exploring the language of color, texture, and composition.
In mixed media artworks, through careful technical manipulations on cardboard and paint, he strives to create a fresh yet ancient and timeless feel to his artwork. His current art philosophy and techniques are the result of focusing on the Culture of a Stroke and experimenting with “oldened” textures.
He mixes post-impressionistic techniques with elements of magic realism and surrealism in his oil paintings. By using different textures, he attempts to express various spiritual and emotional states of the objects and their environment.
