If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Painting, Photography
I am...
“Stanislav Shmelev combines his expertise in ecology (he is an ecological economist) with his fine art training to create photographs of natural environments, the impact man and his artefacts have on those environments and the interfaces between the two. In Complete Systems Dorset, the beauty of lacy patterns made by sea and surf are mirrored on the sandy shore where, by contrast, crowds of insistent footprints allude to the pressure man puts on nature. “
About my artwork
In my work I am trying to capture the unique atmosphere and sense of place of different environments. I am most attracted by the unique and unusual in the ordinary. I combine my interest in sustainability and visual expression in two series of images that could be called “Nature Reserves of the World” and “Sustainable Cities”. I search for motives which have been prominent in the history of art (a series “Hommage a”) and explore the spirit of music in creation by studying jazz musicians at work. I am inspired by complex patterns in nature, beauty in broad sense, and the art of the past. Colour plays an important role in my work, I try to use only natural sources of light and travel to my destinations in a sustainable and responsible way.
I have recently written a new book: Ecological Economics: Sustainability in Practice
