About myself and my artworks

Leonid Kozlov is the author of a number of works. He devoted most of his creative potential to creating gallery of dancers, namely ballerinas.

Slender, refined female figures surprise with a real harmony of forms, the delicacy of volumes and the purity of lines.

Different for the plastic and mood, the ballerinas are depicted at such moments when the dance is about to begin. The master fixes the inner concentration before the movement, or vice versa, at the moment of a minute rest, but when the dance has just completed and the energy of movement still creates a certain rhythm
