Penza art school Vladimir Pavlovich in the time to finish was not necessary. But for many years, until the reorganization he was a member of the city partnership "the Artist", taught in the fine arts Studio DC railroad, worked as a graphic designer and decorator in DC and the city theater... So with a brush and paints, he never left. Yes, constantly participated in exhibitions of regional and city: Chelyabinsk, Pskov, Novgorod. In Novgorod, his works were exhibited for the 1000th anniversary of the baptism of Rus. His paintings were bought museums, from our, Chrysostom, and ending with the Nekrasov Museum in Leningrad.
Landscape painter, who mainly still life V. P. Kovrigin, - the path of the Zlatoust circle of artists, in General, is typical. And yet not every one of them writes the main natural attraction of the city, its business card - Tagansky mountain site. And even fewer of those whom he manages. Vladimir Pavlovich Taganay not once opened her heart. There are such works in the current exhibition, "Otkliknoi comb", for example. Interesting and its urban landscapes, very different genres - from academic school to free decorative fantasies.
And in General, Kovrigin very "Zlatoust" the artist, almost half a century, by their skill and diligence, who wrote about Chrysostom and Chrysostom. Alas, in "Zlatoust encyclopedia" you will not find even the mention of his name (as well as other Amateur artists who have made a contribution to the creation of the scenic image of our city. But not so much). Especially for the Zlatoust is a very typical stable presence at all times distinctive artists in the people Zlatoust.
