Robert Mif

Robert Mif’s cityscapes are like steps on the way to the Harmony, to its comprehension and recreation. He shows a bird’s-eye view of the city, view from

the roofs and garrets. It seems the flies over the city and catches glimpses of the

cathedral’s domes, embankments, canals, bridges. As a true artist Robert Mif not

only feels the beauty of the world around him, he understands it, sees some pattern that lies at the heart of it. Hardly is he attracted by magnificent palaces and wide squares. He is much more fascinated by Petersburg of Dostoevsky with its well-like inner courtyards of the houses, Kuznechny lane.

 Most of his paintings have intrinsic lyricism, modesty and simplicity of expression means. He is attracted by harmony of light- and- show relations, silvery and pearl tones, delusive monochromaticism of the night light. Strict and balanced composition, quiet color spectrum and extreme laconicism of the artistic language constitute the unique manner of the artist. Robert has a fresh and immediate feeling of the soul of Saint-Petersburg, rainy and misty, spacious and fascinating, and he manages to portray it in his paintings, full of genuine lyricism.
