I like the butterflies image with the islands.

Who is the author/artist?

Zuza (16:46:00) :

Hello Hose! I don’t know the name of the artist. As I previously said, I receive most of the picture by email and the artist is most of the time unknown. If one of my blog’s visitors recognizes the artist, please tell me his name so I could give him credits for his work.

Steve Savage (16:37:49) :

Usually when one hears the word “Surrealism,” the name “Salvador Dali” immediately comes to mind. As one who has been a more than 50 year admirer of Dali’s work, this admiration has now been supplanted to second place behind Vladimir Kush’s absoluely brilliant, superbly imaginative, creative, mind-soul-spirit provacative, evocative, oeuvre which stands singularly as the capstone upon the Pyramid of All Surrealistic Expression.

how some arts!, i like his creativity mind!

29 05 2007
Fred (02:12:44) :

Superb execution and creativity, but I’ll stick with Dali in first place, not only because he did it before Kush but because he used his hands and not machines.
That said, Kush is a worthy successor to Dali.

Evan (09:17:02) :

Kush is a wonderful artist. He’s actually got a large exhibit in the Chalk Farm Gallery here in Santa Fe, NM. If you live near here, I’d suggest visiting it. (I think he’s also going to be attending a gala for his art on June 26th there, if anyone’s interested.)

Maria (17:39:09) :

these are absolutely beautiful pictures. I love how you mixed nature with human activities. That’s the way life should be, isn’t it? instead of destroying all this beauty. . . . . . I think you depicted THAT theme well. . . . . .

We discovered Vladimir in Hawaii back in 2002. He has a gallery in Lahina, Maui. I was looking today to see if he was still popular, and found your website. I am proud to own two originals (shown here) of The Shell and The Pearl. Both hang in the same room in our home. His technique is very precise and a close look reveals the work of a master. Go to Maui and see….

Darrell (23:37:45) :

All of your comments are correct about Vladimir. I have been an admirer of his work for a few years now and have collected 8 giclees of his and an original and they are all hanging in my house. I can ot imagine ever to part with any of them. My favorite is Nero. What is so amazing about his work is that he has developed a very unique method of painting that you see almost no brush strokes on his originals which makes it almost umpossible to distinguish an original from a giclee without going up very close and studying the piece. I met him last October at a wonderful gallery in Santa Fe called teh Chalk Farm Gallery. We spent some time talking and it is a pleasure to know this person. He is very kind and what you would imagine an artist shoudl be like; have talent beyond your imagination but still be a very kind and normal person. Talking to him is like looking at his work. He has inspired my kids to paint and has opened doors for the whole family to grow imaginatively. I hope he becomes widely known as he will have a large impact on many people with his special style and ideas.

jacqui (19:20:31) :

Theses are wonderful pictures. i am almost in his mind with these creations. I have never heard of him until now, I am so pleased that I stumbled across them. I saw a young artist in puerto vallarta mexico do very similar work, but with aerosol paints . i brought two home with me to england and they are admired constantly. Where can one buy these ??

Patricia (10:12:17) :

There is such a great cosmopolitan simplicity in this art and it just bowls me over! I think I have found a new love within the scores of this artist’s brush and alchemy of worlds deified. I am such a novice to be speaking on the quality of this shimmering pool of beauty and unique defiance. I shall look for more.

A unique ability to put so much into so little space, without confusing the beholder.

delhi (14:58:52) :

Outstanding imagination. Outstanding skills in translating what’s in his head to what’s in my head. Who cares if he uses hand, machines, horses or butterflies. Thanks for posting this Zuza.

Jamie (07:52:38) :

These pictures just made my day! ‘Still Life with Mandolin’ and ‘Fauna la Mancha’ are my favourites!

5 09 2007
LK (10:40:29) :

Shell is my favorite work by Vladimir. If TDavid ever wants to sell the original, please let me know. I don’t know if I could actually afford it, but I would like to have the opportunity to buy. On second thought, it might break my heart if I could not actually afford it! A lot of his originals are sold sight unseen, or before he has even completed the painting. I believe he is one of the most collectable artists in the world today. The value of his prints, let alone his orginals, continually increase, especially once they are sold out.

thank u zuza for sharing ur interest for vladimir ihave just discovered along by now.i wish i had a more moderate use of the medium and learn from this master who is different from dali who thought no great painter could be born in a land of snow.

thank you zuza for sharing ur interest for vladimir .some of it was never thought before.

Mary Beth (08:27:32) :

These are beautiful. Many have compared him to Dali, but I also see some Magritte influence, especially in Book of Books and Still Life with Mandolin. I think Magritte had a crisper, cleaner style than Dali, but Dali is more obvious in most of the work here. There is no doubt that Mr. Kush is extremely talented. Thank you for sharing these; I would not otherwise have heard of this artist if I had not been on Stumble, and now I will be able to research him.

Jehosephat (11:50:18) :

Absolute rubbish, it’s just a bunch of kitchified Dali rip-offs. I prefer ” Crying Boy” or “Bathing Gipsy Woman” over these simply because they were originals.

Forrest (03:41:51) :

If you all like this stuff, check out a book called “Masters of Deception” by Al Seckel. Stumbled upon the book after viewing art by Ron Gonsalves in South Lake Tahoe. He lives in Canada, just showing his art in Tahoe! The entire book is dedicated to Illusion art such as you see here. Much of it is very interesting and there is quite a spectrum of it in the book. I own a print by Gonsalves and had him autograph my copy of the book. Also took the time to visit the Salvador Dali Museum in Southern Florida. Amazing to see this stuff up close and personal, versus a picture in a book or on the internet. Enjoy! P. S.- This stuff is very good, too!

I agree with Jehosephat….Valdimir took Dali’s ideas. Whats up with the painting “Departure of winged ship”? That is definetly a Dali painting…or can you spot the difference?

Nina (18:12:27) :

You know, you can’t see many of his paintings online, but there is this one artist called Tony Meeuwissen, and he does very similar surreal paintings, I think they’re quite similar. So for instance, he did this one painting of a daddy long legs pushing a pram with a baby in it. And he too did a lute made out of a pear. But yeh, if you like Vladimir Kush, I think you’d like Tony Meeuwissen.

Wow, beautiful paintings, this guy knows that the world is not what it looks like, its what you can imagine, so image the world is a disk, the world is a disk. When you imagine infinity, maybe were on the surfacing of philosophie. But at least as closer you look to the litttle things as bigger you can se the big things, enjoy it n keep on smilin :)
