Vladimir Kush - The Russian Surrealist Artist Who Inspired Me

Vladimir Kush plays a key role with my influence on surrealism during Art GCSE. In fact my first independent short film at Uni "African Sonata" was based on his titular painting, a promise I remember making to myself back at school when I wanted to adapt the painting into animation. I have done so, and it has become a multi-award winning film! I've added this quote from Kush on my home page:


"I believe that what I do is not only just a style of painting, it's a brand. It's a style in many different ways. It could be a jewelry, it could be a sculpture, an animation - there's many things you can do with it. And so, in the end, it's a lifestyle, too."
