He is an artist from Sevastopol ( Crimea ). The place is maybe far from a big art cities but full of rich multicultural heritage
and inspiring vibes of Black Sea.
He discovered water colour medium in a very young age and has been using it for many years since then.
Votzmush studied art at the Theatre and Cinema Academy where he adopted the nick name which actually his real name (Shumtzov) but written conversely.
In 1998 he participated in Sotheby’s auction “Art Link” (Tel-Aviv). Votsmush is a member of Union of Artists of Russia, International Arts Foundation, and International Association of Artists (UNESCO).
What artist is creating and could be considered as a pure wizardry. He gained recognition for his mesmerising paintings which are full of breathing life. When you are looking at those stunning artworks you can feel seaside salty wind, hear a sound of ocean and cry of seagulls, smell a hot air of deserts, feel a fog on your skin. They are ghostly and real at the same time. Those worlds are ephemeral , vanishing and tangible at the same time.
There is incredible story telling quality about those paintings; warm humour and innate feel of medium which remind me brilliance of Japanese calligraphy.
