Vladimir Chaika calls his art bon-art, “good-natured”. It goes back to the relaxed and joyful French style of Matisse and Dufy. His universe is harmonious, full of bright colors and pleasant emotions. His artworks are imbued with a passion for travel, they invite us to enjoy the exotic attraction of Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar, Italy and Greece, to immerse ourselves in sunny and abundant other worlds. These paintings set one to an epicurean calm mood, make one break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Vladimir Chaika was born in 1978 and graduated from the Moscow State Academic Art School named in the memory of 1905. He has organized over 30 solo exhibitions in Russia, Belgium, USA, Greece, Tanzania and Italy.
