Since the end of 1960s traditional realism in paintings of Vitali Tulenev replaced by mystical stories, with images from today up to the artist childhood and adolescence. They live in picture against the laws of time and space. Their selection and formation caused by ideas and poetic taste of artist only.
In paintings of Vitaly Tulenev color loses self-sustaining value, forming a kind of shaky aloof "environment", some picturesque equivalent of time, from which we can see images and symbols, folding in the texts and messages.
