Tryndyk Vasily

  • Netherlands (the)
  • Painter
My painting focuses on the essentials, and tends to revive deep feelings (tenderness, generosity, sharing) that have been drowned in the tumult of modern life.
Vasily was born in Russia in a province of the former Soviet Union (Kabardino-Balkaria). He discovered art with his father Nicolay, a known painter from the Caucasus region. Encouraged to pursue artistic studies, he enrolled at the Art Academy in Leningrad (St. Petersburg). In 1982, he became a member of the Artist’s Union of the ex-USSR and participated in several exhibitions, including in Moscow. He is somewhat of a celebrity in his own country and was awarded a medal in recognition of his career as a painter. The artist left Russia two years later and moved with his family to the Netherlands, where he lives and works today. Anonymous yet again in this new country, he gradually became known and exhibited in several Dutch cities (Nimègue, Eindhoven, Maastricht, Amsterdam) and in Germany. Vasily’s paintings are now found in many museums and collections around the world (Germany, Canada, United States, Russia, the Netherlands...).
Vasily's father still remains his main source of inspiration. But he also admires the masters of the Flemish school (fifteenth - seventeenth centuries) and modern painters Gustav Klimt and Marc Chagall. Vasily uses the brightness of oil paints to illuminate his paintings. His palette alternates between warm and cold tones. Strong ground shadows are the only details that create depth. His melancholic, faceless characters stand on a solid background. Some of them recall the world of entertainment (dancers, musicians, acrobats) or the "commedia dell'arte". Their anonymity allows the artist to universally reach us. The viewer can imagine the character of their choice (self-reflection, a loved one, an acquaintance...)
