Formula for a Genius

Formula for a genius : Pavel Filonov .

Flowers of the world Blooming, one of the most mesmerising and mysterious paintings I have come across. I yearn to see it in real time and space, oh move Pushkin!!

Extract from one of my posts about Filonov and Analytical Realism:

Thanks to his sister Yevdokiya Glebova who preserved many of the paintings, they resurfaced again under Gorbachev’s Perestroika , opening to the world the thought and art of a man, who is now undoubtedly accepted as the mysterious twentieth century genius.
And a genius he is, for he has extended the definition of human experience by painting both the dejection and beauty of his life beyond the realms of what a canvas can hold.
