Prominent painter Alexey Parfenov paints a Kirsan Ilyumzhinov’s portrait

On 21 January, the first president of Kalmykia, the sixth FIDE president visited the studio of a famous Moscow painter Alexey Parfenov, who painted his portrait. Alexey Parfenov designs interiors, paints portraits and is engaged in monumental painting. The artist follows a school that painting experts call Energism.

Energism is a new direction in art, representing the original creative energy used by the artist to create not just a visual object but, above all, a disclosure of consciousness.

The essence of this direction is that one can see real life scenes or portraits through paintings of coloured vortices, live vibrating flows and fields. These paintings help the viewer enter a meditative state and connect to the life-giving streams of cosmic energy. A painter transfers the feelings that he cannot express in words into paintings.

Alexey Parfenov himself described the meaning of the portrait as follows: “Dear Kirsan Nikolaevich, this is a picture of you and your mighty Spirit! It is a great work! The image precisely conveys the depth to your personality.”
It should be noted that Parfenov painted portraits of Yevgeny Primakov, Sergey Naryshkin, Patriarch Alexy II and many other politicians and culture figures. Critics note that behind artist's paintings there are many meanings, worlds, themes and techniques.
According to the master, everyone is responsible for all the energy that passes through him. The world is one, and man cannot be separated from the power of unity with everything that happens on our planet. Today it is not enough to be just a reasonable person. The age of the subconscious man begins.
