How many times have you complimented a gorgeous woman walking doun the street, or turned somersaults like an organ-gringer's monkey as one casually removed her clothes to sunbathe on the beach? It's true; the female form is truly a majestic wonder and, like the rest of us, Arthur Braginsky is fascinated. And then some.
The Ukrainian genius paints his models in a world of fantasy, capturing their killer curves draped in ribbons of silk.
Says Arthur, "I'm inspired by the nature and the perfection of the human body. The female body is beautiful in motion."
Art is clearly something he’s dedicated his life to, graduating from Mukachevo Art School in 1982, then exhibiting work across the Continent for more than a decade while continuing to achieve great results.
First and foremost, I want to deliver the beauty. In order to achieve this, I need to combine a number of components, such as the right model, thoroughly elaborated composition, colour scheme and the format of the image”.
And what makes the right subject, mate?
Before I choose a model, I watch her move. Hand movements are especially important for me. In my opinion, hands are able to render more emotions than faces, and this is my search and challenge in art.”
And with that, we clap our hands to Arthur’s paintings of beautiful nudes.
