Buzovkin Ilya Vyacheslavovich

Miniature artist was born in the village of Fedoskino in Moscow Region, situated a few miles from the capital on the bank of the river Ucha, in 1975. And now he lives in his native village.

As Fedoskino work is instantly recognizable through its being the only village to paint in oils, in his work the artist uses this technique and the style of Fedoskino miniature. Buzovkin finished the Fedoskino School of Lacquer Miniature in 1993. His diploma work is "Portrait of Ekatherina II". His teachers were B.P. Gorodilin, V.V. Sinelnikova, T.A. Knyazeva, and O.V. Golovachenkov.

Nowadays Ilya Vyacheslavovich works at the Fedoskino factory, and he also improves his skill studying externally. The subjects of his works are very different. The master thinks that the most important part in his production is to pick up a drawing correctly, but whole design of an article, softness of painting, and coloring are weighty too. In each pattern Buzovkin tries to use whole color schemes. The master considers work on a miniature is finished when the author himself likes it completely. As a painter, Ilya Vyacheslavovich starts a new work with the object to make it better then previous one. The painter can always distinguish his works from analogous ones on any conditions. He has his own caption. Buzovkin thinks that creative works of such unsurpassable painters as Makovsky, Perov, Polenov, Bryullov, Borovikovsky, Geinsboro, Shishkin, Basnetsov, and Bushe had a great influence on him as a painter.

In his free time the artist likes to go for a walk to admire the nature, to work at home, and also to visiting different exhibitions and museums.

Buzovkin wishes the admirers of Russian lacquered miniatures every happiness, love and to beware of cheap forgery.
