Viktoria Prischedko -what an artist!

I've just read about a new book called `Realistic Abstracts' by Kees van Aalst which seemed interesting. Reading the reviews it said the painting on the cover was by Viktoria Prischedko. Intrigued I starting searching.

I soon located her website (with her husband Slawa) http://www.prischedko.de/ and what a fantastic painter she is ! So is he by the way although different in style. I discover new artists every week and wonder at the talent that is out there. This young lady is from Moldavia and currently lives in Germany. She is one of the featured artists at EPC courses in Catalonia, where I had the pleasure, a few years ago, of being on a Charles Reid course.

More of her paintings are featured here http://www.Mdperrot.com/page-peintre...rischedko.html


She paints in a semi-abstract style with the most glorious use of colour. She reminds me of two young British painters who are starting to make their mark. Jean Haines http://www.jeanhaines.com/ and Kaye Parmenter www.kayeparmenter.co.uk/ These young women artists seem to me to be at the forefront of a new direction for watercolour with glorious use of colour and paintings that mix realism with abstraction.

I have to admit I'd never heard of either her or her husband and I don't know if she has ever been mentioned on WC.

Peter

Yes it is Claude and that's how it appears on on my post. Doesn't it? Puzzled - what's your point? Her husband is Slava not Slawa though.

When I read your post, I immediately clicked on the link as I'm always interested in recommended artists, but my ISP, Comcast (shutter with dread) redirected me to their search page with a DNS error. I thought, mayby a typo in the URL, so I Googled the name and had a look at her website. Just to be sure I tried your link again, with the same results as the first time, hence my post. I was pressed for time, so I just posted what I thought was the correct link. If I had more time, I would have viewed the source for the page and eyeballed the URL from the underlying code, but as I said, I was short on minutes this morning.

Appologies for any toes I may have steped on.

all the best

Re: Viktoria Prischedko -what an artist!

I have to hold my hand up though. Two of those links are wrong, one minor and one more so. The correct ones are :

http://www.Mdperrot.com/page-peintre...rischedko.html

http://www.jeanhaines.com/ (not Susanhaines )

Sincere apologies (Just checked them both now work. ) I do normally check these things but when writing the original post was called for lunch so finished in haste. That's my excuse. It won't happen again- I hope.

Peter
