Андрей Ковалёв

"Music is a dominant but not exclusive theme in Andrei’s art. We see depictions of performers and their instruments done in such a way that we feel and even hear the jazz or classical musician’s ideas and experiences. It is like going to a symphonic performance to “watch the music being heard” and it is in that synesthetic moment that the artist and the audience enter an integral relationship as co-creators.

Andrei allows us to see the world as the confluence of sound and sight:  through his art he brings color and shape to sound and sound to color and shape. After all, music has color and shape [the architecture of a symphonic piece and its tonal colorations], and color and shape in turn are sonic [the staccato of red, the diminuendo of blue, the crescendo of the sunset spectrum at the end of the day].

He walks with us on the path of such notables as Kandinsky and Goethe, Scriabin and Rimsky-Korsakov, Duke Ellington and Liszt. Some of these people were synesthetes; others made synesthesia a programmatic project affecting their work. With Andrei, we see the world in its multi-sensory display."
