About Vlad Tasoff

Russian artist Vlad Tasoff is a master at blending the worlds of the fantastical and the real to create  dynamic paintings that celebrate  the essence of human spirit.  His works  offer a unique brand of organic surrealism charged with delicate intimations, traces  and shadows. Overlapping, semi-translucent veils of rich, frosted pastel figuration sketch out the female body  in synthesis with the vegetal and geographic features of mysterious terrain.

Adopting the characteristically surrealist trope of masquerade as metaphor, Tasoff’ s dynamic use of hybrid female forms greet the viewer during  precious instants of  sensual slumber and spiritual discovery. Specific archetypes such as angels, enchantress and deities appear to fise seamlessly into their surroundings. Tropical oases, glacial slopes and dewy meadows emerge  amidst illusions to Western and Oriental culture, fashioning  mystical landscapes ripe with the beguiling fruit of forms, symbols and signs…
