Victor Syrnev

Victor Syrnev tames life with silver reins. He pushes art’s boundaries and intensifies its content, raising the bar in the international art world. He provides with a new meaning the traditional oriental decorative pattern by embellishing it with a western touch. The artist’s quest is clear: reaching a certainty and creating a connection with everyone and everything. The ornaments created by the Syrnev emphasize the individuality, beauty and originality of human being. He prefers to work with noble materials such as gold of different shades, lustreless silver, grey pearls and pink corals, with mammoth bone and tortoise-shell. His work combines a fine sense of space and artistic excellence of engineering.

His object “Thinking man“, recognized as one of the best jobs in the international competition “Art Takes Times Square” (New York, 2012), will be published in a special edition. Editor in Chief Jeffrey Aldrich wrote: «Out of the tens of thousands of artists who entered the “Art Takes Times Square” contest, only a select few will appear in this publication. You can take pride in knowing that your work was among the best we saw, and we believe this special coffee-table book will be even better with your art included».

His jewellery collection “Asia Metamorphosis” embodies the principle of replacement and alternation of the images. As in the lively nature one period changes to another, spring follows winter and morning comes after night (changing colours and atmospheres), we find in the collection two different states, two unconstrained images reflected in one object.

The project “PALMISTRY” starts from the principle that each person is unique and original. This is evident even in the patterns on our fingers. Drawn lines and signs of our hands are original too. Additionally, each person is characterized and influenced personal events. All these features are so instructive and attractive for Syrnev and allows him to create personalized jewellery based on these lines and signs of individual things.

Jewellery collection “Conversations from far away” arises from the dialogue between the book miniature “Shepherd” (made by the Persian painter and calligrapher Reza Abbasi, in 1634) and poetic collection “West-Eastern  Divan” by Johann Wolfgang Goethe (1819). “The Shepherd” miniature details gave a rise to the creation of wonderful jewellery objects. The collection contains materials donated by wildlife: emerald-green beetle wing, gray and white pearls, pink coral, black mountain yak-horn and white mammoth and coloured stones.

The Flock” collection, Clouds and Birds, (2009) analyzes man’s adoration and exaltation for all the winged creatures. Birds, wings and flight have always been symbolizing the highest state of being. Heavenly creatures easily getting into flocks of gold and silver birds. Frozen for a second, they are transformed into jewellery.

The works of Victor Syrnev have been awarded by international acclaim and reflected in a number of honorary titles and awards. His creations can be found in the well known museums and private collections in different parts of the world such as the Moscow Kremlin Museum (Russia), the  Schmuckmuseum (Germany), the Gapar Aitiev and the Goldsmiths house (Germany), the duke of Württemberg’s private collection and the Asia Universal Bank (Kyrgyzstan). In 1992 Syrnev was awarded a Silver medal by the Russia Academy of Art for his “Creation of flight” jewellery collection.
