FIRST SOLO EXHIBI¬TION OF PROMISING YOUNG ARTIST

The first solo exhibition of a young artist ErdenebulganUnubaatar is open from June 19-25 at the Bluemon art gallery. The ‘Spring Melody’ ex¬hibition displays his some 40 works of portraits, sketches and studies of nature, executed by pencil, charcoal pencil and oil paint. During the open-ing ceremony of the exhibition artist and professor of the I.RepinSt.Pe¬tersburg State Academy Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture Ontgontuvden underlined that teach¬ers of the Academy highly appreci¬ated Erdenebulgan for his noticeable growth of his skills in a short period of time.
Graduating from the School of Fine Arts of Mongolian State University of Arts and Culture, he just completed a 2 year advanced course at the I.RepinSt.Peters¬burg State Academy Institute of Paint¬ing, Sculpture and Architecture under the leadership of V.S.Pesikov and Darya Alex¬androvna and returned home.
“-My father is a drawing teacher; he drew paintings all the time and I loved to draw from my childhood. So my father in¬fluenced me to become an artist. I love to create portraits and nature. We meet so many beautiful, good looking and nice people. I want to express all aesthetics in my portraits. I try to illustrate heart and character of the person along with her/his face and appearance.” said Erdenebul¬gan. ‘When I draw, I am isolated from the surroundings. All my heart goes into that painting, feeling like I am absorbed into the drawing. It is unique feeling when you enter someone else’s inner person and you do not exist anymore. I devote myself wholly to my work”.
The exhibition has a fresh new ap¬proach demonstrating pencil and charcoal pencil portraits which are rare in exhibi¬tions.
“- When I catch a moment of the per¬son’s attractiveness and beauty I start to draw immediately. Nature drawing is the same. It is vital to show harmony and proportions of the persons’ eyes, ears and lips. However, eyes are the most im¬portant because eyes express one’s hap¬piness, sadness, glory and misery -- all in the eyes. One small line of eyes can change the spirit and character of the per¬son a lot. If an unnoticeable tiny line is wrong, a happy person could be altered to be sad or an agile person may look clum¬sy. Therefore, portraits require high sen¬sibility. I think portraits are a very tough genre of painting. Everybody has his/her extraordinary image and has experienced a different life which should be expressed correctly.”
Erdenebulgan is praised as a promis¬ing young artist by professionals and as proof, he took an examination and re¬ceived an invitation to study at the Flor¬ence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy. He will be the first-ever Mongolian student to study fine classic art there.
