Artist Statement

I make landscapes.

I create things which I can see around me. It’s pretty obvious but not everyone notices it.

Sometimes I merely document a scene. On other occasions, I attempt to “cut out” the most unnoticeable, unimportant piece and make it self-sufficient, put it into the spotlight. Often, my works contain a composition, a pattern of light and shade, shape and form, color and contrast. But sometimes, a surface is enough (ground, snowfield, the reflection in the water). The challenge is to capture details in a minimalistic composition. To do that, I use texture – thin, fat, protruding strokes of paint – to emphasize the shape, to capture the color.

I have a diploma of a textile artist. During my studies, I used to work with fabric and filaments. Now, I try to mix these skills with painting. This way, a texture of a brushwork looks like a set of threads. I weave a tapestry on canvas.

My goal is to perfect my pieces as much as I can, so people realize that this is not a low-effort painting, not an etude, but a carefully prepared, enhanced composition.

Like a tapestry.

Artist CV

I was born in 1994 in a Western Ukraine.
In 2015, I got a bachelor's degree at Lviv National Academy of Art, in the textile department. My teachers were Oleg Minko and Iryna Danyliv-Flinta. Also, I studied at the Academy of Arts in Lodz (Poland) during an exchange program (2013). I have been taking part in many international plein-airs, projects and symposia ever since I was a student. Some of them were: “The Loving Vincent Exhibition” (Het Noordbrabants Museum, 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, 2017); “Memory of textiles” (gallery „Umelka”, Bratislava, Slovensko and gallery “Diamant”, Prague, Czech Republic, 2015); "Autumn Salon" (Palace of Arts, Lviv, Ukraine, 2014).

One of the latest projects I have been participating in is “Loving Vincent” – the first fully painted animated film about Vincent Van Gogh. I was a painter-animator in that huge project.

My works are featured in many private collections across Ukraine, Poland, Russia, Hungary and Netherlands.
