Announcement of the auction ArtSale.info No. 150. Shulzhenko, Roginsky, Yakovlev, Zverev, Chubarov, Chemiakine and others. December 14–20, 2022
The museum-scale canvas and rollicking painting with a Russian spirit is exactly the format that Shulzhenko's collectors especially appreciate. Others, however, hate him for this very reason, accusing him almost of Russophobia. Like an actor who plays a negative character, Shulzhenko is pestered for the heroes of his paintings — drunks and their rowdy girlfriends. However, for the artist, drunkards and marginals are not part of his surroundings, but an object of study.
