Quote from Vincent Van Gogh : "Let us not forget that small emotions are the great captains of our lives and we obey them without knowing".
Having always been attracted by creation, Arkady began producing his first self-taught works from 2009 onwards. In parallel, the young painter carried out many work placements with confirmed artists in France and Moldova, with the intention of learning the rudiments of this discipline and perfecting his technique. He would also become the assistant to the painter Grigore Dontu (born in 1965) for four years, during which time he would help create works and sell them at Provencal markets. Wanting to confirm his knowledge and savoir-faire, Arkady enrolled at the Sorbonne University in Paris in September 2014 to follow a dual course dedicated to art and art science. Always armed with his sketchbook, he enjoys walking about town and drawing his sketches: these first drafts would then become a guiding principle for the production of his future canvases.
Using oils that he associates with palette knives, paintbrushes and rubbers, Arkady executes his urban and rural landscapes in the peace and quiet of his workshop. Nature is a constant and endless source of inspiration for him. An admirer of Provencal painting masters like Jean-Baptiste Olive (1848-1936), LouisMathieu Verdilhan (1875-1928) or even Pierre Ambrogiani (1906-1985), Arkady strives to capture on his canvas the characteristic beauty that emanates from this region famous for its light and shimmering tones. "Let us not forget that small emotions are the great captains of our lives and we obey them without knowing" - this quote from Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) guides him when he attempts to translate his own emotions into colours.
