Victor Kalinin speaks a unique pictorial language. In the artist's paintings - a rebellion of colors and lines dissecting them. The artist’s trademark was “fused fragmentation” of the image, a peculiar collage and mosaic of color overlay. A saturated background where vertical, horizontal, diagonal strokes, expressive color contrasts are struggling - all this creates a feeling of visual tension, elastic dynamics of the canvas.
