Why I am painting in blue - Creation through the
(A part of the interview) :
Journalist : Why are You using mostly the blue colour ?
Kravcev : There
are only three basic colours, the blue, the yellow, and the red, and from this three, we can make all the others.
blue and the yellow are becoming from the white, like the red is becoming from the black. For exeample, put only a drop of
white in a red colour, you`ll get the pink. That`s the reason the blue and yellow sends the rays, they are expressing and
the red receive, and atracts.
In the nature, the sky is blue, sunshine and the stara are yellow, and the flame in the
center of the Earth, or our flash and blood are red.
Once upon the time, before everything starts, the whole Earth was
red, all in the fire and flame, before creating, still without life. And it was warm and desirous.
Blue from the sky,
and yellow from the sunlight, mutual, joint, made a green colour, the emerald. And that emerald flowed down to the Earth,
atracted by that red colour, to touch her, because a movement is the nature of the
green, a red is placing and attracting, just as we have two sexes. So, the first rain had falled, and the life begines.
that reason, the green colour rests our eyes`, it comes to us directly, allways in the move, and the red is so remarkable,
allways stable and atracting, like the mathery,like a flesh, allways in a desire to be touched, to recieve attention.
yelow is a colour of the center of the space. Yellow rules. The people who coudn`t stand some authority, sometimes get nervous
even if someone wears for exeample a yellow T-sheart. Imagine for exeample, to live in a room with transparent yellow walls,
many people could become, unless to say crazy about that.
And the blue is a colour of the spirit, of untouchable, of air,
of the sky. Even the mountains on the horizont are becoming blue. The blue is the colour of the spirit without flash. Imagine,
some food in your plate, if become blue, you will loose even the smalest desire to eat it.
Like we have four seasons,
for elements, four races, for sides of the world, we have also: red, green, yellow and blue.
I mostly paint with blue
and white, because in nowdays, in the period of galloping technology and computer systems, I want to paint that which is unvisiable
with a simple view and untouchable, but we all can feel it, and which connects all of us in one, life or space.
any camera or PC, could make something better in a plastic reality that any painter can do, and I am just trying to evoke
theese which is understundable for all spirits.
That because,I am proud. Nowdays, technology can copy almost every artwork
from the history untill now, but no painter, no camera, no technology, can copy that spirit which is shining from my paintings,
or to copy anyone of them to be excately the same.
QUOTATIONES FROM THE CRITICS :
Individual energy of M.Kravcev
has definitely a dimension more, a dimension of archetypic and prophetic
In the nearest future,
it is expectable that those artwork become a monument of the epoque
...M.Kravcev is one of the
most contemporary artists of Europe today....perhaps, those which is authentic in he`s style, easy could be and only possibility
for the art painting in generaly, to go further (M.Nachtigal)
On the poetic way, the artwork of M.Kravcev in generaly
is a kind of the most oldiest narrations of a human history
In his artwork, M.Kravcev is narrating
about the archetypic movements of the great explosion, the Big Beng. He`s paintings are full of positive energy, and they
With artwork of M.Kravcev, artpainting in generaly is finaly richer for the one really
unic and contemporary artist, which is following his own style, without any imitations.
Because of his authentic style
of painting, all in one breathe, and his brave orientation to a blue colourit, which is allways the most difficault for painting,
all theese on so poethic way, I want to giv him a public nick name for the future, an Arpheas with a paint brush, which he
