About the painting course
The course consists of 4 sessions 4 hours each long.

Still life. From Morandi to the contemporaries.

February course we are dedicating to an Italian painter Giorgio Morandi. He concentrated almost exclusively on still lifes with great sensitivity to tone, color, and compositional balance. The art historian Roberto Longhi, who researched Caravaggio and Piero della Francesca, suggested Morandi to be one of the main contemporary artists.

We'll make a copy of an Italian painter, learn how to work with the subtle pallet and use it for our still life inspired by local ceramist Ksenia Wallenstein.

About a curator
My name is Oksana Devochkina and I am an artist. I graduated from the art faculty of the St. Petersburg State University with distinction. I have been painting from 2002 though I identified myself as an artist since 2015. I paint for money, I paint for fun, I paint to run from myself and I paint to find myself. And I invite you to join me. I speak English, Russian and German.

Portfolio on
Our space
Kunstfuck studio has enough room for ~6 students. Sometimes we work out of the studio exploring new workshops and hidden Budapest studios. The name of the residency — Kunstfuck — shows our post-modernistic attitude to the art and refers to a famous University of Arts in Stockholm — Konstfack (Konst — art, fack — faculty, Swedish).
