The Hobbit, or There and Back Again by KnyazevSergey
The Hobbit, or There and Back Again
This box has been finished in august 2015. Creation of such detailed miniature took much time. It was inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien`s fantasy novel. You can find most characters of the novel painted on the scene, also impressive dragon Smaug, the guard of greatest treasures. More photos and boxes are on my website.

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
I live in old russian town of Vladimir. I studied at the art college, design and decoration. My favourite style is russian lacquer art Fedoskino. It combines design, oil painting. I am a professional artist, work in a special glazing-transparent technique — using layer by layer oil painting, mother-of-pearl, gold leaf, gold and silver powder. In my gallery presented artworks of different genres: portrait, landscape, folk, architecture, fairy-tale, fantasy, surreal. I like to work in this technique, just holding unready work in my hands and looking on it from different ways is charming. Shining of mother-of-pearl, gold and painting creates three-dimensional effect. All of my art is unique creative one-of-a-kind works. On my site will be added description with details to every artwork. My slogan is constantly improve and open something new and unusual.

Every artist have their own way and my art says everything for me. I used to work in monumental painting style, graffito, aerography and design. My miniatures unite painting and stylih design, as I myself develop new forms and designs it fascinates me. I participated in art exhibitions, my boxes are in private collections in USA, Europe, Australia; in art catalogue books. Time required to create a good box — from 1 month to 6 as the process needs not only creative way, but maintaining the technology too. My work is a hard process that requires time and patience, beginnig from inlaying of mother-of pearl, preparation of place for silver powder, applying several thin layers of paint, drying and varnishing every layer, polishing etc.
