The works created by A.V. Dukov who is one of the brightest representatives of modern Russian art life consequently developing traditions of Russian and Western-European painting of the end of XXth century are remarkable for the richness of ideas, for an outstanding talent of a painter organically involving various painting systems. Dukov is an exponent of modern acute attitude to the world of arts. He opens new possibilities to express modern disposition in different painting systems – starting from Russian Medieval arts up to avant-garde directions of the XXth century.
The principal determining basis of the painter is color which is intense, deep and clear. Pictorial canvases of the artist are notable for the unique dynamics of art harmony, particular expressiveness of light and shade, frankness of almost childish perception of nature and on the other hand – one can note the refined fineness of color system. Andrei Dukov thinks of Picasso and Matisse as his inspirers.
Works of Andrei Dukov are kept at the Moscow Museum of Contemporary Art, Köln Museum of Contemporary Art and collection of baron von Graes in Köln.
