Pulniy is an award-winning Russian painter. Also, his artworks are absorbing and abstract. In fact, his paintings uniqueness has been reckoned with over the years. This is because it purely lies in the aesthetic and pleasing view it portrays with cool and calm colors. More so, the series of messages viewers get at different glance makes it a wholesome illustration of good artwork.
Delving further, what precede a storm is definitely calm, tranquility and quietness. And, in this baroque and decorative painting, “Before the Storm”, Pulniy depicts the initial tranquility and stability before a struggle or trouble. Likewise, he intensely illustrated this with life on the sea. The old and popular adage “Red sky at night, sailors delight and red sky in the morning, sailors warning” comes to mind. Also, Pulniy represents a sunset far above in the sky and a thick dark cloud behind signaling storm. That is a perfect positioning of an image anticipating storm in the mind of the viewer.
Finally, it is doubtless that this aesthetic illustration from Pulniy is a masterpiece. The view from the water surface, the boat calmly placed sailing from afar, the dark cloud behind it, and the sail cloth attached to the mast to catch the wind shows precision and exactness. Indeed, the painting is conceptual, brilliant and beautiful.
