The manner of painting Vladyslav Metyolkin is energetic enough, alive. Impressionist vision of the artist is vivid in every volume brushstroke, which falls on the canvas like an autumn leaf, densely covering the basis in different directions and depth. And most importantly, in the artist’s paintings – the depth of content and subject matter, which is due to a special philosophy of admiration and worship in front of natural beauty.
The creative inclinations of the artist opened early enough. From the first class he wins at all school contests in drawing.
After graduation from school in 1979, Vladyslav entered the courses of the artist-designer. Soon he goes to serve in the rocket forces of the city of Rostov-on-Don. But even there, Vlad does not leave his main predilection. At first he becomes an expert with topography, and then serves as an artist-designer of the House of Officers.

Vlad was happy to learn all the new depths of his beloved business. The only thing when classmates went to summer planners to namallevnichih corners of a huge country, he had to make a living. Designer of the Odessa book factory, interior designer, designer of the Park of Culture and Leisure, as well as of all kinds of exhibitions, presentations and festivals. Of course, such “planners” gave another invaluable experience in a wide variety of conditions and practically behind all related specialties.
