Fantastic. Insightful. Desired! I wish I could have a print of “Ripples on the Ocean”, it would be lovely to look at, very serene yet exciting.

Perfect surrealism and captured emotion… i’m in love

Such beautiful artistry. These paintings would make a great source material for a tarot deck. All the imagery and symbolism in them.

Vladimir’s mind is very insightful and intelligent.

This is the greatest Ive seen in months or years! I deeply fell in love with Morning blossom and chess wow wow wow! You’re my idol

Larry (04:32:15) :

Had the chance to meet Vladimir when we were last in Maui. He is a very nice guy and went well out of his way to accommodate our son who (like his dad) fell in love with his work. You should see some of this in a gallery. His work is much more extensive than what you see here or on his website.

Trini (01:28:01) :

He’s my favorite artist. Thanks for posting not many people know of Vladimir.

Wow, i’m really amazed by these pics. Nice work mister Kush!

Love it!

tyson (07:54:52) :

i dunno. nice technical work, but rather ‘dali-esque’ to the point of being almost boring. is this really surreal art or art to look like surreal art?

15 11 2007
Babz (06:01:44) :


15 11 2007
Namron (21:59:32) :

Technically fine but just a rehash of Magritte, Dali etc.imagry. The original surrealists were not sentimental ,cutesy, or corny like much of these are.

22 11 2007
tyson (20:54:18) :

there also seems to be an over abundance of ‘naughty’ parts. (i posted this once before but it got removed, apparently the anatomically correct names are too taboo).
obsessive about openings. to the point of being redundant.

M Radha krishnan (08:30:04) :

Mindblowing creative inspirations! As I felt, Dream Tour!

These are fantastic works of art. Highly impressed by these, I think I’ll buy a print or two.

ugh.. tyson, stop critisisng the artist unless you think you can do better!
I think this artworks brilliant.

“FABULOUS”… Contrary to what a few of you are saying, Dali would love them!

Awe-inspiring…simply fantastic work. Kush is a genius.

FaNtAsTiC! … I really like expressing emotions by this type of art. In this pictures you can see the ideal nature u can dream of.

Cat (23:44:30) :

great…this is the art..

12 04 2008
Domonique (20:33:50) :

To dream in color would be to view Vladimir’s work. For those who critisize, you obviously lack the talent and the ability to appreciate of those who can create artwork that stir others’ imagination. You can never judge someone’s imagination or creativity, unless your that someone who created it in the first place.


6 05 2008
Jenks (05:19:00) :

This work is the ultimate in the art of imagination or if you will the imagination of art. I love it keep up the outstanding work!

Great images, I just love Vladimir Kush

I was looking for art prints, too bad that most of Kush’s paintings are not available :(

great artwork, thought provoking!

amazing..takes you to an other world

18 09 2008
sheebs (18:40:26) :

i’m assuming the fans of this art enjoy other great works such as kitten calenders and artificial floral wreaths, because that is the category this art belongs in.
boring, cheesy, and irritating.

botsman (23:31:42) :

beautiful,beautiful and beautiful

princess Facen (22:15:00) :

I love his work and have several pieces. the art is very thought provoking and moving. the symbolism is fantastic. I think his surreal work is awesome. Great job and keep up the good work.

i love the surreally realist dipiction of the skies but i found the human figures disturbing…

13 11 2008

Pretty amazing. The level of detail in Vladimir’s art work speak volumes.

now that’s what i call talent.

mandra (05:40:47) :

Wow… it really amazes me that some people can’t look at a thing of beauty and accept it as such, without degrading it by casting it as inferior… Vladimir Kush can add one more new fan today!

24 11 2009
Letty (02:31:27) :

Happy to say that I’m a new owner of two of his paintings and 1 sketch. Fell in love with his work while visiting his gallery in Las Vegas Nevada. Fell in love with one of his paintings and had to have it, then wait…fell in love with one more and had to have that one too. Then couldn’t leave the sketch behind! Looking forward to seeing them hanging in my home, they’ll be arriving in a few weeks!

19 12 2009
Metaman (00:41:12) :

You should see them animated! It is now available in a new DVD created by Vladimir Kush called Metaphorical Voyage. Check it out on

Hannah (14:04:01) :

Hi, i love Vladimir’s work they’re beautiful. But i’m always wondering. . . what does he use? Does anybody know? I look on the internet and it doesn’t tell me. I’m very curious because they look like watercolor rather than oil, or acryllic. If anyone could tell me i’d be very greatful.

28 12 2009
cole (19:03:06) :

I have to agree with Tyson and Sheebs. Besides for a few aspects of these, they’re not very creative. I painted in the style of Maxfield Parish for a while, and after fighting the criticism for a while, I finally realized that my critics were right. It’s just not as impressive when you use someone else’s established style without adding your own touch. Great technique, though. Just too Dali-esque. Oh yeah, and for those of you who are up in arms against negative feedback, some artists actually appreciate it. Just because you think it’s amazing doesn’t mean that other people can’t have different opinions about it.

Jovan Nikolic (17:46:29) :

Fantastic pieces. One of the best Surrealism paintings I ever saw.

14 02 2010
Terri LaClaire (21:19:25) :

I love the surreal work of Vladimir. My son found this site and shared with me. Being a lover of Dali whose work we had the privilage of enjoying in St Petersburg FL, he felt I would enjoy this work as well. My favorites are “Bound for Distant Shores” and Firery Dance. I would like to know where I can get prints of both.

21 02 2010
Otter (04:41:02) :

nicely worded cole. while i personally disagree, to most artists, being an amateur as a Senior in High School myself, criticism is sometimes appreciated, but those who simply tear apart the art because they do not feel that aesthetics are necessary nor even like that style of art (cubism, surrealism, photo realism, etc.) at all are quite irritating, and if one is going to criticize then giving suggestions on how to improve are almost always appreciated.

i myself believe his works are amazing. i cannot think of many ways in which he can improve. his ability to paint an emotion as a poet would write about one is awe inspiring. i hope to someday be as good as him.

24 04 2010
Linda Paul (22:35:07) :

These paintings are amazing! such insight thought and talent.
Bravo! from one artist to another

7 05 2010
Raevyn (05:04:28) :

IMHO the best art inspires a reaction….I don’t necessarily think that a negative reaction is all bad. Everyone perceives art differently because our reactions to art are really a mirror of how we perceive things. Debate isn’t a bad thing either. That being said, when I see someone trashing another’s opinion it kind of makes me wonder why some think their opinions are the only right ones. Stating that you know how another artist would react is, as well, more than a little presumptuous.

Hi Terri LaClaire…If you are still looking, I work for a gallery which coincidently has both ‘Bound for Distant Shores & ‘Firery Dance’ – EC Gallery in San Diego –

I work at Exclusive Collections Gallery in Seaport Village. I’d be happy to help you out. (619) 238-0320

amazing, new genius, Salvador Dali would be amazed with Kush’s work. and it’s more inspiring and light and positive and moodlifting, as Salvador Dali’s paintings are more of dark, mistic and sometimes disturbing.
