Paintings by Vladimir Pajevic

There are many absolutely stunning paintings at Vladimir Pajevic's website.

The following are a few of my favorites.


Vladimir Pajevic is an elusive artist living in Italy. He's little known in the United States.

There's a review of Pajevic's work at Grim Reviews, which focuses on  the darker aspects:
"Pajevic's obsessively recurring landscapes, which often show lonely, vegetation stifled gateways, share an inexplicable spirit with the surreal and the strange. His scenes seem so thoroughly isolated and mysterious, in fact, that they provoke serious meditations and unlikely chills."
 I find Pajevic's work whimsical and melancholic. To me, all the gate ways and doorways, instead of being threatening seem to be more a challenge and an invitation to explore.
