The Pro-Rector of the Latvian Academy of Art, Associate Professor Andrejs Teikmanis wrote about him:

«Andrejs Severetnikov is a realist of the postrealist era. Realism of the 21st century is not like its older brother of the 19th century. Throughout the 20th century, realism was either acknowledged or denied. Those who courageously fought for the reconstruction of tradition, no matter what the circumstances, suddenly noticed that reality has aspects of fantastic personal subjectivism inherent in it. Andrei Severetnikov’s work can be considered an illustration of the search for the mystery of reality.

His painting is an honest and courageous adherence to the traditions of realism. The artist donates all his time to perfecting the traditions of realism. Quiet landscapes, still lifes and portraits serve this purpose. Each day begins with revelations, adding to the already accumulated knowledge with new discoveries. Painting for the artist is not a means of survival, not a form of production, but the basis for a strategy to explore the world». 

Exhibition open until 09/12/2022 at Stabu 44, Riga.

Free admission.
