Vyacheslav Mikhailov’s painting expresses the spirit of our time in parables and puzzles with the lightness of a comic book. Vyacheslav is a philosopher, but his philosophical language is volatile and metaphorical. Twins in identical bowlers and black deuces from his "Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Moonlight and Winter Evening" look more like the characters from “True Detective” TV-series. Their similarity is akin to the similarity of two lighthouses from another Vyacheslav’s painting, reflecting on the problem of difference and repetition.
