Vladimir Karolkov
(1946)

Vladimir Karolkov né en 1946 à Kastsyukovichy, a étudié à l’Academie d’Arts de Vitebsk, sa mère artiste lui a enseigné également les rudiments de la peinture. 

Puis il a poursuivi de manière intense le spirituel et l’absolu.Il a été tôt familiarisé à l’oeuvre de Malevich, Soutine, puis s’initie vers les portraits et paysages qui représentent une force peu commune.Ils s’en dégagent une puissance et beaucoup d’audace.

Après s’être passionné pour le dessin à ses débuts, Il expose ses huiles et sa peinture augure une certaine sensibilité et ses dernières réalisations lui permettent d’intégrer la cour d’honneur d’excellents contemporains a découvrir.Sa peinture est toujours animé d’une facture bien particulière qui ne laissent jamais indiffèrent, associant la nature, les paysages environnants de son cher pays, la Bielorussie. 

Il exprime dans sa peinture tous messages, comme la vie quotidienne, jusqu’aux dissonances musicales.

A partir des années 90 il associe des couleurs, plus fraîches, plus calmes mais non moins apaisées. Karolkov a été bouleversé tôt par la disparition de ses parents et sa peinture extériorise une vie tourmenté mais apaisé par la découverte de la nature et ses jeux de couleurs qui lèvent toutes ambiguïtés de sa vie.

Aujourd’hui il fait parti du noyau inconditionnel des Peintres, reconnus par ses contemporains et surtout sa peinture est très recherchée par les collectionneurs avertis particulièrement au États Unis, France et Angleterre.

La Bielorussie a toujours été l’un des lieux artistiques les plus vifs en Europe avec l’École de Vitebsk, dernière exposition à Paris en 2019 au Musée du Centre Pompidou La nouvelle génération où beaucoup d’artistes ont préfèrés rester dans leur pays, offre une grande opportunité de découvrir des artistes jusqu’a ce jour inaccessibles.

Vladimir Karolkov offre une palette d’une richesse extrême, qui se traduit par un pur lyrisme, pictural d’un goût parfait, raffiné, mélangeant les bleues, jaunes, des tons justes et forts qui s’harmonisent dans la somptuosité.Il lui suffit de représenter un aspect quelconque de la nature pour ressentir tout a la fois des émotions.
