  • Biography
    I make my art in a wide, creative, and technical range and use different modern artistic media.
    An artist must create characters that can evoke a wide variety of emotions. The palette of human feelings is so great that there can't be a single method for expressing them.
    I would be bored if I had to paint variations of the same picture for 20 years. Therefore, I explore the topic of expanding borders in my art - how much can an artist move within a single methodological field?
    I make art all the time, regardless of whether I'm painting, traveling, or talking on the phone. Characters sometimes come spontaneously; sometimes I see them in real life. Any art materials are worthy of attention.
    Though I use the capabilities of modern digital media, I still prefer traditional art materials and techniques. I use modern polymeric materials in sculptural art objects and installations more and more often. This is fully applicable to my paintings: using acrylic and textural materials makes it possible to create unique mixed effects, and traditional oil paints now act as auxiliary media.
    I draw my sketches with a pencil or a ballpoint pen on cardboard, paper, or stickers. These sketches can become a painting, graphics, or remain sketches.

    Artist based in Kyiv (Ukraine). Have 11 solo exhibitions. Participant of many others events and art-projects. His art-works are in collections of public, cultural  and sports figures of  Britain, US, EU, Australia, Israel, South Korea, Qatar, Singapore, Ukraine, etc.

    Dates: April 14, 2018 - May 18, 2018

    Nikolaev city. Ukraine. Gallery Riviera. "Not Just a Game" - solo exhibition artist Semenyuk Evgen. Includes more than 30 new paintings.

    Conceptual Description:
    Not Just a Game - not only a game with a rigidly defined geometry and a free figurative painting, not only their union with texture and color, but also a certain degree of transition from simple (minimal) to complex, to philosophical questions, like "...all the men and women merely players" Shakespeare's, or "The Glass Bead Game" by Hermann Hesse.
    When the involved spectator begins to understand: what he took for a simple game, for fleeting entertainment, is not that. Infinite levels of interpretation, where the meanings connecting with the painting, create new meanings, and the viewer feels himself the co-author of the artist or co-creator, forever fascinated by this game.
