Levon Lazarev is one of the leading sculptures of Saint-Petersburg. Images created by the painter always have some moral idea. His art is filled with philosophy of honesty and eternal opposition to evil. That is why the viewers consider his works to be fervent and invocatory.
He feels an inclination to the so called everlasting human values. Trying to understand the mystery of existence he as a rule goes out of the boundaries of visible and concrete. He also wants to show this way to his viewer appealing for his imagination, memory and intellect.
Emotional force of sculptor's creations is so great that it inspires us with the feelings the author experienced. Artist's images evoke a lot of associations, bounds, recollections. Perhaps this understanding of author's way of thinking is the main point of real art.
Lazarev works in different ganres of art - sculpture, painting and graphics.
