Are there words to describe the power the sea has over humans? How can one list all the reasons it holds such a special allure for us? It is through the magic of the brush and pallet that we can experience all this!
The sea in Pavel Mitkov's paintings is a miracle in its own right. Waves seem to be conversing with each other and anxiously jostling to reach the golden sand. Quiet at times, rough at others, they are always brimming with verve and vitality and one can almost see them move and hear them sing their marvellous tune.
A true artist understands and can interpret the language of the sea.

In Paris one feels as if in a museum in the open. Paris is Art. A walk along the Seine river, the mystical Parisian night, stars which reflect on the water surface…. The magical atmosphere of the city imperceptibly goes on a long walk from Montmartre to Cartier. Passing through some of the most delightful Roman and medieval sculptures, old squares, beautiful parks, galleries, museums and mainly streets, streets….sooner or later you will end up in some cafe on the bridge Pont Neuf or in a designer store in Le Marais. Paris has everything, to make your dreams come true. An authentic and very earthly city, the modern and contemporary is in incomprehensible harmony with the rich culture and historical heritage, and as a final chord and something French, everything around is french… there is not time and there is no space, everything is here and now. Paris is one and unforgettable!
Paris is not only views, but real emotions and experiences. This city does not assume impassive photographing and curiosity towards history and culture. Paris is passion. Paris is the city of Molière, Baudelaire, Monet, Sartre, Bizet, Degas, George Sand...
All this magic is recreated in the paintings of Pavel Mitkov with magnetic power, which makes you look and experience for a long time until you feel like you are hearing the voice of Joe Dassin.
