In the works of contemporary Russian artist Mikhail Kaban-Petrov, Red occupies the central place, and the red color acts as a symbolic message to the world, alarming and anxious. In general, the artist is always difficult (and no sense) to explain his work. Modern art, like music, acts on unconscious almost immediately. An unsophisticated spectator (like most of us) relies on the criteria – whether the painting touches or not … Paintings by Mikhail Kaban-Petrov touch.
The red color for many designers is one of the most beloved. This rich, vivid color in the spectrum is the first, and this is why it is the most active. Red is preferred by active, energetic, excitable people. The red color represents the energy, the will to victory, a breakthrough power, it always gets what it wants (way to achieve depends on the shade). It loves to be first, but not always successful because of its destructive qualities.
Red is given the power to love and hate passionately, passionately believe, etc. Red forces to be active, it gives strength and inspires, represents victory and the ability to correctly strike. This color controls the sexual relationship, and can push for gender convergence, even when there isn’t a true desire. Passion is its positive aspect and a negative – a perversion.
