The artist Marat Kadyshev in his work goes through an immersion in the individual subconscious and the subsequent ascent to a universal source of meanings. He calls his style decorative realism and strives in painting to combine reality and decorative texture.

The images of Marat Kadyshev retain the ability for continuous self-renewal; they carry powerful associative connections and surprises. The artist follows the path of the liberation of his personal imagination, through the prism of which he rises to universal and eternal themes.

So, in the picture "Date" we see the moment of the birth of life. The tree in the foreground in the painting "Village" symbolizes the beginning of all beginnings. And an ordinary, at first glance, still life with apples is called "Conspiracy." In the painting “Faith”, a breakthrough is made from a closed, deaf space into the open sea. Here a rare gift of the artist is manifested - the inner intactness of the initial states of the soul, which allows you to look into the depths of the universe. Hence the spontaneous relevance of his art, the unity of the external and internal worlds.

Marat Kadyshev devotes much attention to the texture of his works. First, he makes a relief on the canvas, then works with color, for him the unity of the idea and its plastic solution is important. The artist’s works are tactile - you can not only look at them, you want to touch them. The master considers any space beautifully - be it a piece of asphalt or an old wall.

The main theme of his work is the beauty of the world around us, its real embodiment. To understand the paintings of Marat Kadyshev, true contemplation is needed, that is, self-identification with the depicted objects, then a special meditativeness of the artist’s creativity and the desire for philosophical generalization will open. The construction of the author’s pictorial compositions is permeated with poetry and becomes the moral construction of his own personality. The author of the article is Lyudmila Kandalova.
