Oleg Tabakov

It is not always possible to determine what is the essence of the artist's talent. I feel that in the work of Anatoly Kuvin there are several factors that make his paintings unique and original so that we can talk about a specific Kuvin's world-view.

His works capture specific Russian consciousness adequate to the artist’s reality. Relaxed flow of everyday being embodies the character of the Russian nationality. Kuvin essentially writes a habitat of a Russian not in its appearance, not the plot, but in its internal state, in the distinctive nature and even in the characteristics of the national temperament.

Sensitive to the Russian provincial life, he enriches our hinterland with a light poeticizing reality. His works are full of extraordinary insight into the nuances and "psychology" of the Russian nature. And they laid the gentlest picturesque temperament granting viewers the true joy of life..
