I’m an artist currently living and working in Prague, Czech Republic. I graduated from Uzhhorod National University with a Bachelor of Social Sciences, majoring in Political Science.
I have always been an artist deep inside my soul. Since consensus age I was enjoying drawing and painting. However it has never been an intention of mine to become an artist. It’s just happened.
I considered art as a hobby until that very day when one of my paintings was purchased. I have been doing paintings and icons ever since.
I love impressionistic use of color and light to create the desired dramatic effects and dynamism. I mix this technique with adding some fine and detailed brushstrokes to the portrait. I really enjoy figurative painting and I strive to capture and convey the essence and the beauty of the subject.
Goal of every piece of art is - to make it alive. It can be found only while creative search. Work and soul of master adds a sparkle and makes it vivid. I like conceptual art if it is breathing and has a story to tell.
Trying many different styles, I realized that my top favorite are: oil painting and a palette knife. I create a paintings with bold color and thick texture to evoke a sense of energy and life. Utilizing intense powerful brushstrokes and a variety of palette knives, I sculpt the paint creating a thick texture that is not only visible but can be actually felt.
Iconography technique has a different nature. Here creativity becomes a service. Icons, which age can be counted in thousands of years, continue to live in modern world, built on a strong canonical foundation laid by the Orthodox Church.
Each Icon created by God's blessing. Eyes of Saints are painted especially precise to express the power, wisdom and divinity of Holy One.
I am grateful of your interest in my art. Hope you will enjoy it.
