Dmitry KLOCHKOV
selfportrait. 30.1x20.8 cm

Artist Dmitry Klochkov belongs to the almost extinct tribe of masters of color and composition. Revealing a subtle poetics of colour balances, his paintings are distinguished by a special deep silvery tone and a masterfully constructed, resounding palette. These canvases are as pleasing to the eye as they are stimulating to the mind. Unfortunately, today collectors often go for promoted eccentricity, rather than for true artistic merit. This is why the artistís name is little known now. However, for the same reason, some 50 years later, his paintings will inevitably find their way both into museums and private collections.

Very happy to see your work on the [Charles Saatchi] gallery site.
I am thrilled that the standard is so high <...> and hope it will be interesting to gallery owners, exhibition curators and collectors to see such diverse work.
