The main character of the exhibition is the painting of D.A. Belyukin. It cannot be confused with the paintings of other famous contemporary masters. Bold color combinations, precision and even meticulous detailing are absolutely precise. Multilayer painting is especially valuable in the age of a high-speed, etude approach to work. The exhibition also presents sketches by Dmitry Belyukin, written in a very short time. Especially interesting are his works of the cycle "Impressions of an Orthodox Pilgrim", made on trips to the Holy places of Russia and abroad, keeping the freshness and spontaneity of the first impression.
The artist has been fascinated by the Pushkin theme since his student days and he himself says that this theme is inexhaustible. Viewers can see his already well-known works dedicated to the period of Mikhailovsky exile, and new paintings of the Pushkin era: from the Patriotic War of 1812 to the war for the independence of Greece in 1828, where Russia took part. YES. Belyukin is one of the leading artists of the Military Artists' Studio named after M.B. Grekov at the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, so the appearance of the military theme is not accidental. The heroism of the defenders of the Russian land, bequeathed to us by our ancestors, of its dear Orthodox shrines is one of the master's key themes.
