Ceramic panels by Viktor Goryaev
Viktor Goryaev is a unique artist, creating masterpieces at the intersection of painting, sculpture and design. The noble warriors and crafty creations, embodied in a fantastic plot, ready to go off the wall. Each panel – a real miracle of master’s imagination, mixing motifs of the Middle Ages, Gothic, Scandinavian and even oriental. You can literally spend hours watching his art. The creator of these works was born in Krivoy Rog. On his personal website, he is extremely laconic: no descriptions, titles, only works of art. He prefers not to specify works, believing that it only limits the imagination of the audience. Agree, because everyone sees something different in any picture.
The Gallery of Viktor Goryaev is like a good novel in the genre of fantasy, where some characters may well once or twice return to the nightmares of especially impressionable visitors.
The abundance of fantastic images opens a window into the world of alternative history with forgotten battles and ancient mysterious forces.
Decorative panels made of ceramics is not the only direction in which Viktor Goryaev works. He is the master creator of the unique elements of the interior, and even designer of clothes and shoes. Although his solo exhibitions have got a lot of positive reviews, he is more popular among private connoisseurs. Many of his works get into private collections without being presented at art exhibitions.
