East Meets West Gallery presents exhibition
as part of The Graphic Arts Annual Fair ChudGraph
held at the New Manege exhibition hall.

Anatoly Purlik and Alexey Lantsev spent a month together during the autumn of 2009 in Altea, a small resort town in the Alicante province of Spain. Both artists are well known for their use of various graphic techniques as a form of travel journal, and viewers in Moscow, Europe and Asia have been repeatedly impressed by their skills in creating quick, often sketchy and impressionistic pieces.

Alexey Lantsev loves to work in the open air inspired by life running around him. His drawings of city scenes, landscapes and still life are full of exact composition details, and characters.

Anatoly Purlik, by contrast, is mainly focused on his rich inner world, full of personal impressions and emotions, and less on the real details of the landscape, person or still life - a real philosopher on canvas.

The difference in their artistic approach to art is absolutely visible, but in the exhibit space both artists warmly enrich each other and allow the public to follow their different inner worlds, life experiences, graphical methods and composition, and also to feel their common character: they are both wonderful artists.
