A series of paintings «Jazz portraits» depicts my favorite musicians in the creative process together with the energy that manifests itself in interaction with their music. All the paintings of this series were drawn while listening to the music of these musicians. Portraits of Billy Holiday, Lester Young and Jerry Mulligan made from the video recording of song «Fine and mellow» in 1957, where they all participate. Portraits of Marcus Miller and Paco de Lucia were painted in a more expressive style reflecting my impressions received at their concerts. Fluorescent pigments were used in these paintings to better express the sensation of invisible energy penetrating the material world. Colors are changing depending on light applied (daylight, usual and black light).
