Step arts.

The entire creative path of Anatoly Silov can be divided into several stages.

Monumental art

The path to art began in 1963, when the 25-year-old Anatoly entered the Moscow Textile Institute at the Faculty of Applied Arts. He studied dashingly - twice jumped over the courses, taking examinations externally and presenting all the jobs.

A new stage, an amazing creative take-off of the artist, falls on the 90s. Creativity Silov has already been determined in art criticism as an avant-garde. Achieve success with the Russian public is very difficult, although we had the brightest representatives of avant-garde art.

Before us - not only the sad history of the last decades of our former Fatherland and political actuality, but also the ability to understand and interpret on the canvas universal values that are close and comprehensible to the whole human race, regardless of nations and classes.

The art of Anatoly Silov was enriched in numerous travels by the feeling of spaciousness, movement and special, "unearthly" lighting. The impudence of penetrating beyond the visible, the certainty of form and, at the same time, the poetic expression of expression, reflect the artist's deep understanding of the world.
African period

Landscape
Interest of the general public to the landscape in painting is huge, because here opens the unfolded panorama of the country.

Gods of ancient civilizations
In the last ten years, peering at my work, I come to the conclusion that it is not enough to write what is seen or seen.

The Art of Anatoly Silov

When trying to refer the work of Anatoly Silov to any existing (or existing before) directions, the researcher is most likely doomed to failure. With all its diversity, this art is very monolithic and self-sufficient. All kinds of experiments in drawing, in color coexist here with a powerful academic tradition, in some works being the necessary framework. The literary component, even if we have a program thing before us, does not matter much-it is so original and unique that the master presents everything that his inspiration relates to. And, at the same time, the artist is completely alien to the "experiment for the sake of experiment," and the originality of his art can only be explained by the originality of the talent, capable of surprising even the sophisticated spectator of the early twenty-first century. Similarly, this art does not fit into the framework of any of the "national schools" - again, because of its scale and diversity. Rather, it conveys a general picture of the modern world in which the boundaries of civilizations are shifted, and artistic traditions, constantly intertwining, give birth to new harmonies, which may be comprehended by the masters of the future.
