Petersburg artist, one of the best contemporary creators of the urban landscape. Member of the Association of Free Artists of St. Petersburg. Graduated from the St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture named after I.E. Repin. The artist, who follows the brush, plunges into the picture and it already leads the creator. “If you show a modern city as it is, without embellishment, the artist will achieve an effect. Everyone has already taken a closer look at the surrounding reality,” says Pavel Butskiy. “My paintings are an attempt to connect time, give people a feel for the spirit of the city, its romance, and expand the range perception of Petersburg. When I write my works, I just plunge into this world, plunge into the past, literally live among carriages, carriages ... "The artist has lived in Finland for almost five years, but by his own admission, he breathes easiest on the Neva banks . "I just grew attached to this city, became attached to it with all my heart, I feel every stone on its embankments," says Pavel. His works, created in a post-impressionist style, return Petersburgers to the northern capital of bygone eras. Looking at his works, we learn familiar streets, embankments of rivers and canals, but next to them - horse-drawn carriages, the first trams, signs of the past. " Works are in galleries and private collections in Finland, Sweden, Canada, Japan, England, Germany, Italy.
