Vulokh was a significant figure in the ranks of artists of the 1960s , abstract artist , contemplative , never, however, itself to any association not relate. Conventional search for him had not critical . He liked to put in front of their own goal. Vulokh said, " Getting Started , I decide for themselves what , for example, will not use more than two or three colors and the vertical, so that , being within these boundaries , I squeezed out all that he could, in order to show that I stand . This is a self-test for me , and not some program ... »

He was passionate about creating the finest scenery and geometrically arrayed , meditative work. Wildlife fascinated him. But no less attractive for it was dead and nature . While working on a still life , he concentrated on a small object - chips, a piece of bark , stone, and the rest of the world ceased to exist. Brought up in the traditions of Russian paintings of the XIX century , Vulokh always slightly shifted focus .

Vulokh subtly felt not only nature , it is generally felt fine . Perhaps that is what brought him closer to the creation of poetry. He was mostly a loner, always " in itself ", but in the face Aygi found a friend and associate . Vulokh created a series of sketches for his poetry, and devoted Aygi Vulokh cycle of poems . In 1994, the artist created a series of graphics to the poems Tumas Tranströmer , the Swedish poet 's largest XX century and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2011 . Direct , clear language Tranströmer , metaphorical world of his poetry , the pairing of different areas for Vulokh were clear and recognizable, despite the distance between the two countries .
