Iurii Kononov


About me

My name is Iurii Kononov and I am a performing artist living and working in Sweden. With a degree from the Russian Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg, I have always been inspired by the infinite beauty and contours of nature. Painting is my life. This is my way to express myself and how I see the world around us. My art is my passion to capture the moment with the right light and the perfect shadow to be able to relive the moment when the painting was created.

Inspired by nature and its colours, my paintings are characterized by relatively small, but visible brush strokes, open composition, emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities. My artworks have been exhibited at both large and small art exhibitions and fairs in Stockholm, Malmö, Lund and Gothenburg.
