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.
