Stone flower master Viktor Vasiliev lives in Nizhny Tagil, the harsh city of tanks, cars and fumes. His workshop was long located on the territory of the old sullen Demidov factory. Like all stone-cutters, he deals with the unkind elements – stone, metal, water, fire. And in these circumstances can draw from the stone body amazingly gentle nature, even more touching, than the inverse images – flowers, berries, grass. These compositions can not be attributed to the genre of “bogus”, seeking the illusion of absolute similarity. Stylizations of Vasiliev are recognizable and inimitable, the master’s hand for a long time has been known to the specialists and connoisseurs of the art of stone carving.. In honor of the 60th anniversary of the master in the Nizhny Tagil Museum of Art organized a personal exhibition of works in various genres – Vasiliev’s art is not only floral motifs, but also animals, and scene composition.
