Valentin Pashkov is a distinguished Russian artist
Valentin Pashkov is a distinguished Russian artist, a contemporary taught by Radimova Tatiana, daughter of Radimov Pavel Alexandrovich, the last chairman of Peredvizhniki Society.
Pashkov was born on December 17 1940 in the village of Kurkino, Yukhnovsky uezd, Smolenskaya guberniya (nowadays called Kaluzhskaya). His lot was such that he was thrown into an impassible Saint Petersbourg guberniya, but he's always felt homesick towards his birthplace, and as the possibility arises he rushes to meet it just like a man rushes to meet his mother or his fair one to get strength and inspiration.
You will see hundreds of his works created in different years and under different mood. But no matter what his spirits are, he always hears music by Vasily Kalinnikov, his favorite national Russian composer.
We hope that your perception of the artist's creative work will not be disturbed by this music.
