Oil on canvas
The authors’ team is the peculiarity of this painting. As “Fantasies of Those Who Fly” is the mutual work of me and my sons. Each of us tried to express own comprehension of flying on one canvas. First my older son and then my senior son decided to draw something unique and special. But kids are kids and it is so easy to divert their attention. That happened with this work as well. Unfinished ideas have been waiting for their embodiment for a long time, until I decided to finish the work – to shape and supplement my young artists’ undertakings, to demonstrate them the advantages of the finished painting.
Each of us wanted to express something personal but admiration of flight united us. That’s why the picture you’re looking at has such a symbolic title. Because everybody has his personal fantasy: miraculous animals or birds, unusual flying machines or cosmic bodies. But the flight of thought, dream or idea can be common thus uniting a group of people in their aspiration to create.
