Art Deco – the last “chic style” of European capitals, created the illusion of well-being, consciously oriented to the past. It combined in a quaint cocktail elements of Empire style and archaic Egyptian art, exquisite motifs of expressionists with ethnic motives – primitive African or Oriental. It was a reflection of the spiritual fatigue, confusion of society and the breaking of moral and aesthetic norms after the First World War.
Art Deco is easy to recognize in the whimsical combination of curved lines and geometric shapes: smooth, rounded corners and clear vertical lines. Favorite art deco motifs – zigzags, triangles, circles, black and white piano keyboard pattern often met in the design of interiors and clothes. A duet of strict colors was diluted with the interspersion of luxurious spots of red, gold or chrome interior items. Create a style of Art Deco in the interior of your own home is not easy, but most importantly – the desire. The basis of art deco is kept – geometry. This applies to the forms of furniture and exterior decoration.
For this direction, the design is suitable for exquisite sculptures by Vasily Olashin and impressionistic motifs of the painter Vasily Brenzovich, expressive painting by Alla Preobrazhenskaya, and still-lifes made on the levkas by Alexander Melnikov.
