Six principles of Chinese painting
Polya Medvedeva is the highest jewellery line, which has been launched in 2010. Back then the name of the brand was Velar, lately has been changed for the name of the artist. Today the jewellery atelier is based in Berlin. Polya Medvedeva designs her jewellery during the last 9 years, she is also ink calligraphist, illustrator and oil painter. All the pieces are carefully produced by the jewellers from all over the world. Polya’s inspiration takes it’s roots from the “Six principles of Chinese painting” by Xie He, which dates back to the 5th century. The first principle is Spirit resonance, the vitality (or nervous energy) which is transferred from the artist into the work. You can find older art theories from China even in the 1st century, when the western art theories been invented lately in 15th century by such philosophers as Albrecht Dürer and others. All of their works and theories belong to aesthetics as an incredible section of philosophy.
The items combine technical accurate work by professional jewellers with the years of experience and new sculptural ideas by the artist. The jewellery inspiration comes from elegant ink-drawing and the shining poetry of Asian artists, which takes its roots from the time when the most sensational art theory was created.
The artist thanks Harprer’s Bazaar Ukraine, Vogue Russia and Ukraine, Interview magazine Russia and the others for a big support.
