KAMU - a creative union of two artists, Olga and Sergey working under a pseudonym. Artists live in France.

"Art of KAMU combines male and female - yin and yang, combines delicate feminine image with brutal scenes of battles or hunting. Yin - a passive, receptive, preserving, feminine world. Yan - is primarily active, pass, transforming, masculine world. Yin and Yang is quite natural complement each other, although in a sense opposed to each other.
Through the medieval theme KAMU provided for the women most important role. Dreamer, it goes from the real men’s world to the world of her dreams. Contrast between drawings and delicate female body highlights the vulnerability and fragility of the model.
Medieval stained glass windows and Renaissance portraits, murals fresques de Kvatrochentto and engravings by Durer, profiles on coins and reliefs of Gothic cathedrals, tapestries - had a tremendous impact in creating paintings. Strong influence on the work also had a style « modern », one of the main means of expression is ORNAMENT, the rejection of straight lines and angles in favor of more natural, "natural" lines, the combination of decorative and structural elements of the composition, dynamics and fluidity of form. Background art flatness, embroidered with fine patterns. Contrast to this background is illusory, volumetric interpret image - a woman’s face. Sergei, a fine artist and expert in art history, brings to these works the grafizm, creating a new visual language. Olga, being subtle colorist and, simultaneously, a model and muse, create in the paintings unique harmonious way. The eternal themes make these works timeless. "

Renaissance art was created under the influence of Greece and Rome, Byzantium and the Early Renaissance. Gustav Klimt and Van Gogh absorbed and reinterpreted Japan
