Mikhail Aldashin was born in 1958 in the town of Tuapse, Krasnodar Krai. In 1987 he graduated from VGIK (The Russian State University of Cinematography) as a life-action film art director. In 1989 he finished scriptwriting and film making course, where he studied under supervision of Yuriy Norshtein, Eduard Nazarov and Andrey Khrzhanovsky.
Mikhail Aldashin spent 3 weeks as the resident artist at The Cube Gallery, during which time he painted 70 paintings.
Mikhail Aldashin paints in the style popularly called «Naïve art». Giorgio dө Chirico said it best: «To beсome truly immortаl, a work of art muѕt escape all hυman limits…But once theѕe barriers аre broken, іt will enter the realms of childһood visions and dreams.» The keyword here is childhood. Naïve art takes the ordinary and adds enchantment. It turns the reality of adulthood into the weightless joys of youth. Simply put, naïve art turns reality into something else, something better. Naïve art often creates the illusion that objects are floating or positioned without anything solid anchoring them in place.
Precision of detail — Naïve artists often pay very close attention to the soft borders, intense backgrounds, and fine lines of their figures and objects.
