On Wednesday, March 3, 2021, at 16.00, the National Museum of Art of Moldova will inaugurate the personal exhibition Boris Poleacov - aquarelle, pastel.

The exhibition presents works from the collection of the National Museum of Art of Moldova and from the studio of the artist Boris Poleacov, made during the years 1968-2005.

Boris Poleacov was born on March 25, 1936 in the village of Lelev, Chernobyl district, Kiev region, Ukraine. In 1957 the future artist moved to Chisinau, and in 1962 he graduated from the Ilia Repin Republican School of Fine Arts. Boris Poleacov's artistic debut is influenced by the works of painters Mihai Grecu and Leonid Grigorașenco, the latter discovering his talent as a watercolourist. In 1967 he became a member of the Union of Fine Artists of Moldova. In those years, the painter began to stand out through his interest in working mainly in large watercolors. The watercolor technique, which requires speed in the artistic process and does not tolerate any corrections, is similar to the artist and his emotional state.

The development of watercolor in Moldova is closely linked to the artistic activity of Boris Poleacov and his position as a mentor. He shares his professional experience by presenting masterclasses to generations in training, frequently inviting young artists to his workshop.

The exhibition will remain open to the public from March 3-28, 2021
