at the paintings, sketches, still life and portraits of Vadim Stepanov,
we see a skilled, prolific artist of rich life knowledge, who lives next
door, knows our life very well and who depicts this life emotionally
in his pictures and paintings..."
The first series that brought Vadim national fame and recognition was done in early 60s and consisted of nearly sixty oil landscapes of Northern Russia. According to the 1965 Artists Union annual review "the series captured something that has never been captured before, namely not only severity of the North, but also its cold, cruel and unique beauty..."
Since 1965 Vadim Stepanov has explored numerous art genres such as portrait, still life, landscape and theme painting. However, strict and primal beauty of the North as well as serene, calm and melancholy beauty of the central Russia have always kept their place among the best Stepanov's paintings. The radiance of his work is not only an exquisite painting style, but also is his ability to capture a spiritual essence of nature.
The works of the artist had been exhibited - and not once - at the international exhibitions auctions in Paris, London and different cities in Italy and Germany. Many of his works are being exhibited in the museums and in the private collections both in Russia and abroad.
Vadim Stepanov is a member of Union of Artists of the USSR.
