DISCUSSION: Surreal Painting and Description

Mohsin Khawaja

February 19, 2010



ladimir Kush is a Russian-born surrealist painter and sculptor, although he prefers to refer to his art as metaphorical realism.

             The title of the painting underlines a significant part of this creative mind blowing painting. In reality it is the human life, going on behind the glowing windows of the castle, which makes you think how back in the days, people didn't have much to do but putting their thoughts into building castles and etc. But it is only the “above the water part of the iceberg”. The colors of this painting are bold, cool, moonlight scene of this amazing “castle” There is also another side; invisible to the “inexperienced viewer” It is the past life, which is feeding the present and conscious life shining with lights.
