Architect Vasko Kashukeev is an artist at heart. He paints as he designs and designs as he paints. A poet, a bohemian, a scholar, he is one of those renaissances, encyclopedic personalities who are already disappearing. In an age of speed and sterility, he again directs the spotlight on something seemingly forgotten – beauty. The beauty of the line, the beauty of the light shade and of course the female beauty. In his paintings, movement is the frontal attack, and eroticism is the Trojan horse. The works of Vasko Kashukeev attract the eye from 50 meters, but they are also pleasant for a long and careful look. The various techniques used are only a means of revealing all the same categories – flight, movement, elegance. These works are created as if in a game and represent the art of the game. They are something you haven’t seen recently and you certainly won’t forget quickly. But the most valuable thing in these paintings is that no matter how much pleasure they give to you, the viewers, while painting them, the author had much more fun.
