Cindy Milazzo Stars at Titovets Art Show
Cindy Milazzo and Lyuba Titovets
Cindy Milazzo was one of the exhibitors at this past weekend's art show by the Titovets School of Art. Although not currently a student, Newmanista Cindy Milazzo, worked with Aleksander and Lyuba Titovets for three years. Her oil painting, a copy of a detail of Gustav Klimt's "Hope 1" sold quickly at the Titovet's 10th Anniversary Celebration of Student Art Show. The Klimt masterpiece now hangs in the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa.
The Titovets graduated with Master of Fine Arts degrees in St. Petersburg, Russia and in 1992 immigrated to El Paso. They since have received numerous regional and national awards for their paintings. Aleksander Titovets painted the official White House portrait of First Lady Laura Bush.
"My experience with the Titovets has been exceptional," Cindy reported. "They've taught me more about color, light and the nuts and bolts of painting than I learned during many university studio art classes. The opportunity to work with them has been wonderful.
According to Cindy, "the Titovets teach pure Impressionism which uses quick, spontaneous brush strokes to paint light and define form."
"They are an El Paso treasure," she says. So is Cindy Milazzo.
