Polya Medvedeva Gallery
Six principles of Chinese painting
Here you can find calligraphy and oil paintings by the russian-ukranian artist, illustrator and 3D designer Polya Medvedeva based in Berlin, and the jewellery which is designed by her and produced by the jewellers from all over the world. The “Six principles of Chinese painting” by Xie He 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 only 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.
