Andrey Epishin draws upon past experiences and current influences to create in oil, watercolor, ink, and pen. Experiencing the world from an aesthetic point of view is fundamental to my art. Finding inspiration in everyday life, he regularly seeks to interpret through his paintings the emotions and characters of the beings that surround him. His figurative pictures combine a realistic technique with a poetic subject matter, often exploring nature and the human body.
