Kalashnik Vitaliy. “The Witches” series of paintings.

It’s hard to unambiguously define the style of a painting signed KALASHNIK. The artist calls it “phantom realism” and hopes for a better definition from critics, while treating such judgments with a sufficient share of irony and skepticism. According to the artist, masterful artistic skills without an original idea as wells as unique creative ideas without due and evident effort can hardly be of any interest to him. His path, as he mentions it with a smile, is to have some hard times before getting a worthy result.
