Valery Kokurin - one of founders of unique Vladimir school of painting. It has arisen on a boundary 1950 - 60th years and resisted to official art of those years. Cloths of artists differed bright decorative effect, sonorous color, dense, sated dab. In invited papers of Kokurina named "abstract artist", "cosmopolitan", "impressionist". There were cases when curators removed its works on the eve of an exhibition. But, невзирая on any vital peripetias, the artist hasn't changed to the palette, having kept the originality. Its canvases drew to themselves the unexpected manner of the letter not accepted in those years, the deep poetry open by polyphony of paints. Themes of its products - the unique nature of the Vladimir edge, a village and small cities with their ancient small streets and motley markets, monuments of Old Russian architecture - all what fills a quiet life of a province with its powerful layer of national culture.

Works of the artist radiate pleasure of life, they is limiting искренни and are direct. By V.Kokurin - the congenital colourist, paints on its canvases it is underlined bright, the celebratory color scale is under construction on combinations of contrast, pure, sonorous paints. In ancient cathedrals and церквах, constantly arising in its landscapes, Kokurin sees enduring beauty which was naturally and harmoniously entered in a natural landscape.

Pictures of the artist are in collections of the State Tretyakov gallery, the State Russian museum, in the Murom istoriko-art museum, in the Vladimir istoriko-art memorial estate, and also in private collections of many countries of the world.
