About the Artist
Highly acclaimed engraving artist Vladimir Rusinov’s lifelong passion has been inspired by engraving the mythological canvases of 18th Century Master Painter Peter Paul Rubens with original wood grains. Pushing the limits of wood, Rusinov’s style combines time-honored techniques with his own innovative approach. The handcrafted engravings showcase the mythical and regal subjects of Rubens in their natural state with delicately engraved wings and hands reaching out towards one another, escaping the confines of a flat surface. He works with a meticulous layout and attention to detail displaying sculpted overlays, and heavy damascene. He draws from metaphorical elements found in each painting and focuses on the iconography and message that transpires within each. His dedicated expression and appreciation to bringing these works to life through sculpture offers a unique experience of these traditionally honored masterpieces.
