There is no end to cubism

Many people think the cubism was a domain of Pablo Picasso and his contemporaries. The time is proving opposite - in right hands and on right place the cubism can flourish even today.

That is my own experience. I have painted lot of cubistic paintings, I drew plenty of cubistic compositions. The market surprised me - buyers are open for cubism even today. Almost all my cubistic paintings were sold in short time. I even painted cubistic interpretations of old masters paintings.

One from Rembrandt was very successful and I liked it so much I decided not to sell it and keep it for myself. Funny enough, I met lot of people who were decided to buy it for any price. As I keep my decisions, I offered to paint a copy of the successful painting - and I had to do it twice.

That is the story of cubism today. I made research in my archive of drawings and I have found a few made by ink and piece of wood stick which are very suitable for art lovers today. That style of drawing is exceptional and characteristic for my period 2002 - 2004 when I created dozens of drawings in this style.
