The artist began as a painter. Painting gives him space for rest from modern design creative conflicts and serves as a platform for research in the field of color, proportions, and composition. It helps him to create the fundamentals (basis) of Andrey Pavlovskiy design. The artist sticks to the Russian aesthetic tradition of the 20th century. He successfully projects it into his modern design works and paintings. He doesn’t have an incredible amount of paintings though all of them burst with love to color and respect to the masters of the past.
