Konstantinovich Gorbachev

born in 1949

Was born in 1949. Live in the city of Dalnerechensk in Primorsky Krai. 25 years working in journalism as a correspondent of the regional Newspapers, then as editor of the city newspaper, the Director of news and publishing enterprises. Since 2003, in journalism don't work. Earn painting.

I have been drawing since childhood. Worked in art studios, but to associate yourself with the fine arts did not want. What I saw in the exhibitions – mostly not attracted. Socialist realism was not inspired.

With modernism, surrealism and other isms met at the time of perestroika, when accidentally fell into the underground bookstore and bought a good edition of "ANTIIKISTA. Theory and practice of avant-garde movements." The author though he cursed "the decadent West", but systematically, professionally described all the main artistic currents of the 20th century. Texts stuffed with quotes, their ideologists and founders, and all this was accompanied by excellent color illustrations. Thanks to the author - V. A. Kryuchkova. There was Dali, magrit, Klee and others. For me it was a revelation. This started with. First painted as a prank, then friends as a gift, then on exhibition. By the time Vladivostok was organized Union of Amateur artists. Was a member of the Presidium. But I with his "sur" was not very comfortable among continuous fields, forests, and rivers. (Although lately I also began to indulge in the landscape, and find their passion). "Professionals" is also not allowed. However, I can't complain. Exhibitions were not enough: several group of regional, zonal one - in Krasnoyarsk. Two personal - Vladivostok (30 paintings). Three in his hometown and in neighboring towns and regional centres. Press attention is not bypassed, do not hurt the radio and TV too.

The theme for the most part dictated by familiarity with the works of philosophers: Berdyaev, Camus, Sartre, Heidegger, Nietzsche, history: Soloviev, Kostomarov, and other cultural texts. Work on the method of their origin, of course - surrealism. It is necessary to introduce myself in a trance is necessary, otherwise do the track does not work. For this you need a theme and appropriate music. Good, of course. Grebenshchikov (Aquarium) is very suitable. But my surrealism, I think, is different from the psychoanalytic. This reading of ciphers of transcendence. That is reading codes on the way to the knowledge of the unknowable. And when the act of existence, that is, the illumination that takes place inside of one of the ciphers, and its fixation. Like this.

My paintings are in private collections in Moscow, Vladivostok, Chita, Blagoveshchensk, Ukraine, South Korea, in the United States.
