Riverside Art & Glass in Wroxham is proud to announce a permanent exhibition of Vladimir Piven paintings. Admirers of the artist’s work travel to Wroxham from all over the UK and abroad to add to their collections.

Born in 1976 in Kiev, Vladimir has gained a great reputation in his home country of Ukraine for his expressive and audacious style of painting. He likes to travel, and as such his pieces reflect inspiration from around the world. He experiments with capturing transient moments in nature – painting sea, sky and animals in their natural habitats all in his expressive, free-flowing style.

Vladimir’s mastering of the impasto technique is the key to his success. He demonstrates great skill with the palette knife, using large amounts of paint to give his work expression and movement. His use of colour and texture define his work. His traditional subject matter is enveloped in the craftmanship of each piece, using his trademark colouring and mark-making. His paintings are abstracted when viewed from close up, but the detail and form come into focus when the viewer takes a step back.

These vibrant and captivating explosions of paint are a real tonic to the predictability of more traditional ways of working.

Following his early career success Vladimir moved to the US and currently lives and works in Miami, Florida. Riverside Art & Glass is the only gallery in the UK to stock Vladimir’s work and has an extensive range of paintings including a series of traditional subjects, such as landscapes, mountains and rivers, horses and swans.

Vladimir Piven’s paintings are available to purchase at the gallery and prices range from £495 to £2,200. Customers may also purchase works through Own Art, which allows the buyer to pay in ten interest-free instalments.
