Artist. Illustrator. Book graphic.
Born and raised in Eastern Europe, I earned a Fine Arts Master’s degree in book graphics at Kyiv State Academy of Arts. As a book graphic, I illustrated more then sixteen books. Currently I live in South Florida and work as an artist, photographer and graphic designer. My artworks are in public and private collections all over the world.
I am always looking for a new form, news ways of expressing my ideas and thoughts. I use classical art forms, but also enjoy playing with new different materials.This project consists of a few artworks, created totally different way, but each one is about what I'm exposed to living on the ocean: salty water, hot sand, fresh breeze, dry lips, and messy hair, with the wind in it.
My art process is intuitive, it's a kind of a conversation I am having with the canvas. The language I'm using are colors, shapes and textures, to communicate something beyond that can not be expressed with words.I hope, it gives the viewer the opportunity to create their own story, meaning or associations, and makes each piece personal to them.
I wish my artworks will bring some joy and thoughtfulness, as well.
