Valery Murushkin manages to achieve a new expressiveness and demonstration of the advantages of metal processing technology in his works, which are characterized by various themes, their stylization and associative-figurative character. As a rule, the objects reproduced in them are of varying degrees of stylization, are quite recognizable and unusually decorative; they are effectively embodied in metal and with liberated imagination. Murushkin Valeriy is unusually effectively able to give products a laconic and finished form.
The use of a new stylistic solution and a rather unexpected combination of different materials for decorative and applied art determines the modern stylistic solution of his works.
Valery Murushkin jeweler
The artist works in the traditional technique of jewelry art, linking precious metals with precious and semi-precious stones into a single piece that resembles handmade fabric. How interesting it is to consider tiny diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, as if peeking out from the interweaving of yellow and white metal threads, which greatly enriches the color and texture of the product, delighting the viewer.
This texture of the jewelry piece is typical for Valery, who managed to create precious necklaces, brooches, bracelets and other products that remind us of ancient samples, but these are not copies or imitations of the art of the 18-19 centuries. This is a modern interpretation of complex, sophisticated, but completely own in form, design and technique of making jewelry. The artist’s interests are not limited to the art of jewelry. He is also engaged in painting and sculpture.
