Pavel Yakovlev’s Artworks

Short Biography

Born on 1986 in Yaroslavl (Ярославль), Russia.

Painter, experimenter, musician and engineer, he trained at the Yaroslavl State Technical University (2004-09).

He has been interested in painting since childhood, driven by the desire to express and illustrate fantasies, dreams and ideas that grew into his inner world. He began studying at The Music School No.7 in Yaroslavl (1998-2002) and tried to translate the sensations of melodies into forms, colours and artistic creations on canvas and other special supports such as motherboards. Pavel has translated some pieces of music by the Japanese composer Akira Yamaoka – author of the “Silent Hill” soundtracks – into paintings. This particular moment marked the beginning of his artistic career.

Pavel’s paintings range from surreal to abstract, in constant stylistic evolution. He’s able to paint with both hands, a rather unusual feature. His experiments also span in sculpture. To fall into subconscious depth can often prove to be a journey that requires a reversal of conventional optics, it is a symbolic reversal of physical laws and the gravitational paradoxes.

Charming and evocative artworks exhibited in various art galleries into the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Italy – where he participated in 2014 at the International Award of Art ‘Perla dell’Adriatico’ of Grottammare, the 3rd edition of the International Art Exhibition ‘Premio Città di Montecosaro’ and also at the ‘Modart Italia’ in Porto Sant’Elpidio.
