Georgy Kurasov Paintings

georgy-kurasov-paintings-everythingwithatwist-06

Georgy Kurasov was born in St. Petersburg in 1958 and still lives and works in the same place. His main setting is women, beautiful, even sensual women. But there is also elegance about the women he paints. And this is the main difference between sexy and sensual. Between fancy and elegant. The way he paints is unique and I am not sure there is a movement or style it goes with it. But it is wonderful. Enjoy.
