It so happened that I absorbed the ideas and images of hyperrealistic painting from childhood. My parents are artists, they have been representatives of this trend since the Soviet era. My mother Olga Grechina combines various directions in her work from hyperrealism to surrealism and abstraction. Father Sergei Geta is one of the most famous artists working in this style both with painting techniques and graphic ones. Visiting exhibitions and communicating with my parents' friends, I saw hyperrealistic paintings by Sergey Sherstyuk, Sergey Bazilev, Leonid Semeyko. All this was deposited in my mind. And mentally imagining in which direction I would like to work, I knew for sure that it would be Hyperrealism.
I started my creative career by studying photorealism in painting.
The appearance of photography has become part of the creative process of many artists, including in painting. Photography allowed us to create not only the most detailed photorealistic images, but also classical paintings, portraits, landscapes, genre scenes. Surely the audience does not even realize that the artist Borisov - Musatov used photography in his work back in the early XX century. >>>
For me, photorealism has become part of my artistic path. This is a detailed study of nature, shape, conditions, lighting, the opportunity to see the subject in large magnification.
In February 2020, the exhibition "Hyperrealism and not only" was opened at the Promgrafika Gallery of the Moscow Union of Artists. The exhibition featured paintings by Olga Grechina, Sergei Geta and Anna Buckwheat.
