The exhibition will showcase the unique series of works creating the dreaming mood and plunging the visitor into the magic world of vibrant colors. These paintings create the atmosphere of the lightness and freshness. You could not get used to such works of Petro Lebedynets. The stereotypes do not work here, because colours and textures are fascinating. “Light” and “sparkling” are united together and create the special space.
Petro Lebedynets was born in Ukraine in 1956. He graduated from the Kyiv State Academy of Arts in 1984 and quickly gained recognition both in Ukraine and Europe.
Lebedynets takes colour and texture to new heights. He describes his art as the “reality of abstraction.” His art exists independently from the visible world. In essence, he has managed to breathe new life into the tradition of European non-figurative art. “I constantly experiment in the system of vivid harmony, and not destruction,” states Lebedynets. He was ranked number four of the top hundred contemporary artists in Ukraine by “100 Artists: Modern and Contemporary Ukrainian Art since Independence” national project.
The artist is the member of the National Artist’s Union of Ukraine since 1990.
His works can be found in private collections in the U.K., Germany, Switzerland, France, Austria, Belgium, Poland, Netherlands, Spain, Italy and the United States.
