Passing by the artworks of Mihail Korubin, we start to shunt through a specific world of mega portraits, known, unknown , imaginative. Their monumentality is being imposed as a dominant paradigm that sets up the basic sensation between the recipient and the artwork. The viewer becomes the interactive entity in his/her individual perception of the exposed face. Aside from the impressiveness the portraits preach with their stylistic realization that is directly related to the skillfulness of Mihail Korubin to create dynamic colored expression. The color is sometimes fauvistic, wild and intensive, and often the complementary mergers of the colorings, posted one by another, shape the form suggesting the third dimension. In his works some frozen action is happening, on some we can identify, which is the action of the main actors (musicians), and on the others (because they are in imaginary and undefined areas) we can only presuppose it in accordance to our individual feeling ( sadness, rage, resignation, questions, fear, cry etc.). Whatever performance the portrait displays restrained reaction and impression, which emphasize the characteristic dimension of the particular individual and the psychological insight of her/his soul.
