About myself and my artworks

He finds grounds for his formalistic concepts in the brightest achievements of the world of abstract art, and especially in the aesthetics of abstract expressionism-neo-expressionism. A significant number of figurative paintings have been exhibited at recent exhibitions.

A. F. Pavlov travels a lot and wanders around the country. And whatever motives appear on his canvases - the old districts of Kiev, the foothills of the Carpathians, the nature of Dagestan, the mountains of Georgia, the valleys of Armenia, the expanse of the Moscow region, hot sands and bright carpets of Central Asian vegetation - the dominant note in his work always sounds passionate love of life, an unquenchable thirst new impressions, admiration for the diversity of the world, its phenomena and forms, the riot of color reigning in it, the whirlpool of feelings, passions, characters, life and natural contrasts, the rapid change of pictures of reality. Essentially the same tasks are set by the artist in his portrait work.

A. F. Pavlov in his stormy, flowery canvases gives preference to the actual painting methods and means of expression - the expression of color, the romance of color. He is an architect by education, but his painting is less rationalistic; rather, it is a protest reaction to the outside emotionality and standard of our architectural environment. The most noteworthy, in my opinion, are his portraits - they feel a keen interest in the human personality, the ability to give a laconic expressive characterization.
