There is nothing frozen in Misha Lenn’s art. Color, dance and music are the heroes of central to his painting. A musician himself, he sets the life in his watercolors move in motion, captivating the viewer with its dynamism and musicality. The musicians are dancing while playing and, in fact, so are the instruments in their hands. From their body movements, you can guess whether they are playing classical music or jazz improvisation.
A virtuoso of painting, he is called “Mozart of a brush and paint” by reputed art-critics.

“Nowadays we see the world as if quite small and we all are connected with each other in visible and invisible ways. I have exhibitions all around the world so I fly around the globe a lot. I see that no matter where people come from and what nationality they are, all the want is peace and beauty. I will be happy to play even the smallest part in bringing this about.”
A master of color, he is mixing the palette as a composer would do with the mix notes, and the resulting music of aquarelle is played by his orchestra.
