Inspired by the book Irving Stone, "Lust for Life".
About the life of the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh.
The book impressed me so much that I had to cry while i was reading.

- This is unthinkable! I can not do it anymore!After a while, Vincent entered a plowed field behind the castle. Now it was already the end. He knew this already in Arles, the first time he felt that something was wrong with him, but he did not find the strength in himself to immediately settle all scores.He wanted to say “sorry” to the world. Despite everything, this is still a wonderful world. As Gauguin said: "In addition to poison, there is an antidote." And now, leaving this world, Vincent wanted to say goodbye to him, wanted to say goodbye to all the friends who helped him find his way, - but Vincent never knew how to express his feelings in words. He would have to say “sorry” with paints.But no one has been given it.He raised his head and looked at the sun. He pressed the revolver and pulled the trigger. He fell, burying his face in the greasy, spicy smell of the earth, which gently and resiliently gave in beneath him, as if he was returning to the mother’s womb again ........................................... . But Vincent is not dead. He will never die. His love, his genius, that great beauty that he created, will live forever, enriching the world. Not an hour passes so that I do not look at his canvases and find in them a new faith, a new meaning in life. He was a titan ... a great artist ... a great philosopher. He fell victim to his love of art.

My name is Maxim Fomenko, I'm a freelance artist from Nuremberg. I studied at the Nuremberg Academy of Arts, study program "Free Art“. Completed 2012 as a master student.Since then I am a successful, freelance artist. My work is in various open and private collections Europe and the USA. My art is about the artist himself, here I ask the question, how does the artist of today look like compared to the artist in the past, how has he changed in the course of art history. How much has his transformation of themes that he dealt with thousands of years ago like feminine beauty, death and Paradis changed. We remember the past epochs with beautiful female scenes of, for example, Ingris, Degas, Renoir or Matisse. Then the fright of the 20th century from Picasso, Braque and so on until today. What remains for the modern artists? Everything seems to be said, all styles and all directions are exhausted, maybe that's why the subjects have to be redefined and reinterpreted. If I may paraphrase Malewisch "it is no longer enough to create a mattress for the night of love".
