Ceramic panels by Viktor Goryaev
A unique artist, creating masterpieces at the intersection of painting, sculpture and design, Viktor Goryaev lives in Krivoy Rog. Meanwhile, on his personal website, he is extremely laconic: no descriptions, titles, only works of art. The noble warriors and crafty creations, embodied in a fantastic plot, ready to go off the wall. And 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. However, 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.
