UrBC, Yekaterinburg, December 19, 2016. Saint Petersburg-Nizhniy Tagil, an exhibition of art works by Petr Ovchenkov, a Moscow-based artist originally from Nizhniy Tagil, opened at Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation’s Museum, the company press service reports.

There are thirty-five pieces dedicated to Saint Petersburg and twenty depicting Nizhniy Tagil landscapes on display at the museum. Ovchenkov, member of the International Arts Foundation’s Moscow unit, member of the Professional Artists’ Union, and Associate Member of Saint Petersburg Petrovskaya Academy of Sciences & Arts, presented one of his works to Ural Vagon Zavod.

‘It took the artist three years to complete all the works presented here. Visitors are taken on an impromptu ‘trip’ from Nizhniy Tagil to Saint Petersburg where they can see Ovchenkov’s most longed-for locations: his childhood’s favorite Dvukhskalka, where he played with friends, the road to Zonalniy, the view of Nizhniy Tagil’s landmark Mount Lisya, and then Saint Petersburg’s Zayachy Island in the Neva, St. Michael’s Castle, Kronstadt, St. Isaac’s Cathedral, and St. Alexander Nevsky Lavra. All the paintings are completed in oil from life, which is why they look so vivid and reflect a particular locale’s spirit,’ the press service says.
