And among all the creative research, the works of the Muscovite Vladimir Mukhin stand out very significantly. His stunning female portraits in the style of French Art Nouveau and Russian realism, delight and originality, and originality, and spirituality.

Analyzing the artist's work, many art critics believe that the originality, reflected both in the style and in the manner of Vladimir, is unique and completely new for contemporary Russian art.

I would like to emphasize that the master, having mastered the technique of combining these two seemingly incompatible directions in painting, namely French Art Nouveau and the main traditions of academic Russian fine art, found his author's face, an inimitable manner and artistic style in writing portraits of girls and women, genre scenes in interiors and in the lap of nature.

The bright, dynamic creations of the Moscow artist delight the viewer from the first moment with extraordinary technique, color, sophistication of lines, cut-off and compositional solutions, positive energy, subtle lyricism and theatricality.

In addition, the artist's painting technique is rich in texture and color palette, and portrait images are deprived of the monotony and "hackneyedness" of plots characteristic of many masters. Everything is fresh, new and original, and is also built on contrasts, both color and compositional. By the way, the female images themselves are contrasting in the master's work - meek and self-confident, gentle and sensual … And all of them are equally interesting to the viewer.
