SINCE 2010, EKATERINA KRYUKOV COMPLETELY FOCUSED ON CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT IN GRAPHICS
Since 2010, Ekaterina Kryukova fully focused on the creative development in the field of graphics, abandoning painting. In the period from 2010 to 2013, she developed the topic of communication between a person and the environment, the transfer of the emotional, psychological state of a person through the pictorial plastic language. So there was a series of large-format sheets (70x100) of the so-called Atlants, made in the technique - an engraving on plastic. In parallel, Ekaterina worked on the orders of a private publishing house. A series of works was performed for him, illustrating the life of Simeon of Verkhoturye, a saint of the Urals, whose righteous life is inseparable from the historical process and spiritual development of the Northern Urals. Unfortunately, for financial and other reasons, the book was never published, and therefore, Ekaterina Kryukova, as the author of the illustrations, decided to share this series with the audience as part of a personally organized educational project (a detailed description of the series and work on it in application). Such a project was a mobile exhibition, the core of which was a series of the above-described illustrations, made in the technique of free pencil drawing, accompanied by text blocks and explanations. The series was organically supplemented with watercolor illustrations for Homer's Odyssey and Iliad, portraits of the poets of the Silver Age, and exlibris of different years. The exhibition, timed to the year of literature in Russia, was successfully exhibited in 5 cities of the Sverdlovsk region for 2.5 years. According to the author’s plan, the exhibition will complete its journey in Yekaterinburg. In the spring of 2013, Ekaterina Kryukova (Pilipenko) joined the Union of Artists of Russia (graphics section of the Sverdlovsk Branch). Recommendations were written by: Zuev Vladimir Valentinovich, Volovich Vitaly Mikhailovich, Vishnyakov Vyacheslav Petrovich. Ekaterina Kryukova (Pilipenko) actively participates in exhibitions, including: 1 open all-Russian biennale-festival URAL-GRAFO. Yekaterinburg, 2011–2012, the First International Exhibition of Small Graphics and Exlibris "Belovezhskaya Pushcha-2009". Minsk. 2012, Yelabuzhsky Triennale of Ex libris. Yelabuga. 2012 and so on.
IN MARCH 2013, TOGETHER WITH HER HUSBAND ARTUR KRYUKOV OPENED ART SCHOOL JOTTO
In March 2013, together with her husband Arthur Kryukov, she opened the Jotto Art School for adults and teenagers in Yekaterinburg, where, at present (April 2017), Ekaterina is a senior teacher and head teacher. In Jotto, for a relatively short period of time, students master the basics of drawing, painting, composition, illustration, calligraphy, etc. Graduates of the school lead active creative, including exhibition, activities, find their vocation in creative professions, such as clothing designer, photographer, game application developer, art teacher, book and journal illustrator, etc. In July 2015, Ekaterina Kryukova (Pilipenko) focused her attention on illustrations of works by contemporary authors of the Ural region, Imer, illustrated poem AJ Rudta "Dam" about the history of the Volga Germans from the 40-ies of XX century to the present day. Ekaterina Kryukova (Pilipenko) continues to be engaged in easel graphics - the “Yekaterinburg Atlantis” series is being developed, where with the help of the plastic unity of architectural monuments of the past and figures of symbolic Atlantes, the idea of preserving ancient monuments, the strength and power of the city hidden in the works of past masters is expressed. Ekaterina continues practical research in the field of modern ex-libris. She is still interested in the historical theme expressed with the help of her favorite graphic techniques: linocuts and woodcuts. From 2016 they try their hand at creating a miniature and ex-libris and students of Ekaterina Kryukova, as part of the composition.
