Nude painting is a difficult thing. Most people do not realize how hard the human body is to draw. Human anatomy and physicality are filled with detail. There are virtually thousands of lines and curves that make up the human form.
Golovin’s style is that of the renaissance. “Classical painting” would best describe his art, but, even that is a bit to simplistic. Golovin incorporates complex themes revolving around female sexuality. Mythical imagery is often present in his work, as well.
Nude painting is powerful and female eroticism can be the harbinger for different messages but the difference in painting a beautiuful female nude work and common pornography may just lie in the skillset of the artist. Oil painting on canvas, serene line definition and years and years of tutelage under great masters like I. Repin, V. Serov, K. Korovin, and V. Favorskiy has made Alexey Golovin a master painter.
Russia has always has a rich history in the arts filled with master painters so Alexey Golovin’s heritage seems well fitted; Proudly russian, he currently resides in St. Petersburg.
Alexey Golovin is a great addition to the world of erotic art.
