View artwork by Vladimir Tabanin

Vladimir Tabanin was born in 1934 in the Arkhangelsk region. In 1966, he graduated from St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts. He is the Member of the Russian Union of Artists and he has worked in Cuba and France. In 2006, VIadimir Tabanin was awarded the title of Honored Artist of Russia.

The artist works with a variety of painting techniques, a participant in more than 200 exhibitions in Russia and abroad. His works are in museums and private collections in Russia, USA, Italy, France, Germany, Cuba, China, Australia, Finland, as well as in museums in Shanghai, China and Turku, Finland.

Tabanin is a wonderful colorist, which is most fully expressed in his still lives. He resorts mainly to ”tsvetopisi”, where every stroke of his powerful message carries its own colorful energy. His intensive use of blue, purple, and emerald green, is combined with a yellow-brown, reddish bunch of colors in growing texture smears, resulting in a sort of “boiling” within the colorful images of the structure.

As a gifted and experienced muralist, he effectively uses contrasting additional combinations to “revitalize” his canvases that are “organized” in a tone study of their principal parts. In Vladimir Tabanin paintings, like many great masters, the plot pattern is very often a kind of confession – the most complete form of self-discovery rights.

  • The Russian State Museum, Saint Petersburg, Russia
  • Volgograd Art Museum, Russia
