Since 1961, Mr. Egoshin - a member of the Union of Artists, an active participant of exhibitions in Russia and abroad. He - one of the creative leaders of the northern capital of the 1960's, one of the initiators and active participants of the "Eleven", created the Union of Artists of Leningrad. In the period from 1959 to 1999 Egoshin was a member of more than 70 exhibitions in various cities of our country and abroad - in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy, Canada, Czechoslovakia, the USA and Japan.

For his first independent steps in the art are characterized by a departure from the academic tradition of stereotypes. From the very start of his career he showed a strong interest in art 1910-1920-ies, especially the masters of "Knave of Diamonds» - Konchalovsky , Mashkov , A. Lentulova , is committed to style" Russian sezannizma "within the meaning of color, composition, concepts of space," thinghood "nature. His inspiration has always been postmodern.

His painting "Mayakovsky", created in mid-1960's and became the program, was a vivid example of the "severe style". Almost immediately, his work got in the field of spectator interest thanks to the variety and richness of color solutions. In 1960, 70 years, marked a significant rise of the creative energy, the search for values, the artist experimented a lot, referring to the different versions of avant-garde painting, often resorting to active deformation forms, primitive and other early works Egoshin marked a schematic representation, which later gives way to the top of the active picturesque, the main value of gain silhouettes and colorful mass interaction.

known works of that time was "family portrait" in which he portrayed himself lying at ease with his paper on the couch in the range of most people close to him, thus demonstrating their reluctance to write on current issues.

Of the wide range of expressive means Egoshin selects only the color. Its subtle nuances, gradations, flickering form a complex pictorial field, built on the juxtaposition of color patches. The choice of color palette, usually refers to objects and phenomena of the world. Nature is always present in his work as a source of inspiration. His painting sometimes is somewhat motley, sometimes sustained harmonies in monochrome color range, then smooth, then the invoice, but it always - his style, his manner, the ability to see the world differently. A wide variety of subjects the artist chooses what he is close, which corresponds to his conception of the world, his desire to join the highest nature, its mysterious aspects.

Herman Egoshin passing phase experiments and various searches, starting with 1970 runs in a single creative manner, which has a certain integrity.

For him the importance of a sense of ensemble interaction colorful masses which do not emit light, not reflected in each in others, however, coming closer in line with the requirements of the general color, brushstrokes interpenetrate each other. One gets the impression that the light going into the depths, lights inside forms a special light of varying intensity, perceived as bundles of energy, flowing from a form into a form showing the dynamics of the picturesque masses. Pure color is missing, everywhere different mixtures, all expressed in a variety of textures. Does not appear on the canvas objects and things, but rather multicolored of Focus Energy, turning into matter - then spots fused with each other, then spread over the surface, then give way to the likeness of hatching. Practically no background as such, all of a unit, a single visual image, a kind of vibrating flesh colors. His art as it balances between the sign and reality.

Creativity Egoshin are generally optimistic in their emotional charge. Ease air pollution and the severity of the primary matter are organically combined in his works through the skill of the artist to build composite structures, where each image object representing a specific interest, becomes a full sound in juxtaposition with other objects, such as his still-life paintings - "Still Life. Mug and Cigarettes "," Still Life with a lantern, "" Finnish secretary "," Rowan ", etc. Interest in silhouette, to the combinatorics of many forms that make up the whole image, which facilitates identification signs, and generalized forms themselves are full of life.

In his work he often refers to the self-portrait that provides a glimpse into the inner world of the artist, to trace the formation of personality. The exhibition presents two self-portraits with a difference of ten years, performed in a generalized manner. Noteworthy are also portraits of his wife: "Under the Umbrella", "Portrait of VI Raheen».

landscapes in a variety of reasons connected to the image more tightly, the nature of their lives by his senses, it is chaotic - February day in the Crimea, "" Sara "," Windy Day in Losev, etc.

Cityscapes, patios, views from the windows - "Old Courtyard in Zagorodnyj", "Old Yard. Rain "," Flowering Trees "and others, created as a result of visits to the country and abroad, sometimes on canvases are undergoing a major transformation, they are in tune with the creative and philosophical quest artist.

Egoshin pays a lot attention to scenes in the interior, he is interested in the world of lived-in, where the tangible presence of people, such as, for example, in "Interior with figure».
