A word from the artist...

I have always been interested in the arts, and that ineffable transmission between the creator and the person who receives the message, this slender thread that connects or not, two human beings through sensitivity and emotion. For, as used to say Arthur Rubinstein, without emotion Art does not exist. 

I started painting very young, inspired by two teachers, one French, the other American, both from Russia, and both named Boris. 

While drawing, the essential basis for any pictorial transcript, remains present in my work, color and light are the two dominant features in everything I interpret, imagine, create ... through subjects sometimes very different . 

That's why I 've always thought that each pictorial theme should be treated and worked according to what defines it, in an endless quest of distant aim, but always respecting the authenticity of creation. 

Over the years, this led to a protean work, but in which I tried to always stay true to my values, according to the style that is personal to me, while focusing on the constant search of the relationship between light and color. 

This light carries an exceptional importance in creations for stained-glass windows, where the theme, the design, and the monumental features, take an exciting dimension for the artist, especially when it comes to stained-glass windows for the churches, places full of intense spirituality.

About "Impressions florales" (flower paintings) by Patrick Waravka, art critic Bertrand Duplessis wrote:

"He rediscovered the Giverny garden for us, and as a worthy spiritual grand-son of Monet, he takes us for a visit: Waravka makes the dream come true..."

"It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done."
