Vladimir, as the wary emotional person, works in on the brink of impressionism and expressionism. The main themes in Vladimir`s works are magnificence of the surrounding nature and uniqueness of female beauty. Vladimir in his canvases saved charm of passing moment. Moreover, ladies in an artist`s pictures are always sensual, temperamental, sexual and landscapes are fool of passion, feelings. Brush strokes on canvases are always confident, powerful; colors are extremely bright and contrasting.
