Mihail FALLING STAR

an obsession...

FALLING STAR image is central in Mihail ʼ s artistic vocabulary. A metaphor of eternal movement, a messenger of life. It first appeared in his 1973 charcoal drawings then i n h i s N e w Yo r k S U N D AY MORNING series and again and again in various other conjunctions. Lately the Falling Star idea is the subject of large paintings on paper what brings him back to the beginning. The artist calls his unwavering interest “an obsession”.
