Allegory of everyday

"Painting of artist Barishevsky is rather difficult to designate as any
specific modern art movement. Notably the matter of question is not only his technique, but inimitable style of his works. When choosing a theme the artist does not rest on order of the day or current trends, but he is guided by his own  vision of what is potential and what should be depicted on canvas. It appears, that for this artist pictures it is necessary to create unique term like "abstractive realism" or "allegory of everyday".
You can feel in his painting specific for his character independence,
preciseness and exactness. In technical respect all works are distinct in scrupulous image design, delicate working out in detail, polished
composition.   In addition, each work has undoubtedly emotive and
philosophical message and expresses the view of artist on different spheres of human activity Indecipherability of the artist’s plots is that he uses for his works themes which we are not used to see on canvas. This is peculiarity of the artist’s individual style. For example we can see “the portrait of tank»  or soldier's stuff still-life. In other words, when depicting rather ordinary and even trivial things, the artist makes them fresh and surprising  for audience and with this discovers something new."
