"...Andrey Pingachev is a bright creative painter. His works (landscapes and still-lifes) are done in a true-to-life manner and are noted for their bright perfect colorful composition and variety of forms, where reality comes to be the symbol of the inner essence. Although his still-life paintings are done in an old-fashion manner, they are distinguished by the feeling of reality. Amber and bunches of grapes, crystal wine glasses, pearls, fur, and metal are all painted as real as a model. Andrey is known for his sense of perspective, spatiality, and ability to create harmonious compositions."
