The Discreet Charm of underdeveloped socialism
• The Discreet Charm of underdeveloped socialism
Life as it is, in the artist Valentin Gubarev.
Its like in Europe, and he lives and works in Minsk. His work is so popular abroad, but almost unknown to his countrymen. In today's world, obsessed both on a cash and exclusivity, the artist Valentin Gubarev stands alone, not chasing fame and simply does what he loves.
In the mid-90s in his household sketches fell out of the French gallery Les Tournesols and entered into a contract with an artist for 16 years. The paintings, which, it would seem, should be understood only by us bearers "The Discreet Charm of underdeveloped socialism," like the European public and the start of the exhibition in Switzerland, Germany, the UK and other countries.
surrounding the perception of the artist is very sincere and direct. Valentin Gubarev comes up with subjects for his paintings. Why, if all around and so much inspiration. Destroying all the laws of composition and perspective, the artist creates a game - and I want to stop at work, consider every detail to go through the town streets, to feel in the role of a peasant that peeps through the crack of the neighbors, who at that time hung clothes, chasing dogs, play dominoes, work and play.

Red - Fortified
In one of his interviews Valentin Gubarev said that it has no negative characters, "I love all of them and treat them with compassion. Just people on my poster kartinah- not heroes, they are often not very well, they are not always happy. For example, in the film "Medlyak" man with a woman dancing at home. On the table there are champagne and chocolates. People often ask me, why a man dancing in your socks? Is life not so? Our man is coming to visit a lady who wants to please, and, of course, takes off his shoes, socks remains. A man in a socks becomes not just heroic, and manual. It can take and do with it whatever you want. A man in socks - a godsend for women. "
