Edward Pustovoitov (Эдуард Пустовойтов) is a Ukrainian fantasy and surrealist painter. He was born in 1964 in Makeyevka, Ukraine. He gained the Designer’s qualification at Odessa Institute of theatrical and artistic studies.
Irresistible desire of travelling once led Pustovoitov to come to Latvia and to join the Riga nautical college; after graduating he worked as a sailor at Latvian Shipping
In 1993, being a resident of Riga, the young sailor Eduard, as he is telling, accidentally arrived to the Netherlands and visited Amsterdam Museum of Contemporary Art, where he for the first time got acquainted with the world-famous, scandalous Spanish surrealist Dali, more precisely - with his works.
Returning to Riga Pustovoitov arranged his studio and began to paint. Since then, the artist spent almost every day in his studio - at first in Riga, and later in Kraslava. However, the artist did not interrupt travelling: now the painting is his travelling.
Very soon a new and inexperienced artist became a "genius" and success greeted him at every turn. Art lovers called Pustovoitov the world-class painter, the follower of Salvador Dali and the creator of new philosophy of art, and his works as genious ones.
American critics called his style "the expressive synthetism" because Pustovoitov’s work is the synthesis of creativity and secrecy of imagination.
Pustovoitov’s works can not be explained and retold. They do not have the informational background, as each work is a mystery, an enigma, philosophical dialogue, but with deep meaning. As a fantastic dream Pustovoitov’s paintings link the beauty and the ugliness, the myth and the reality.
