“Creating art objects, I worked in lot of techniques until I found something that helped my imagination to reflect on the canvas. This is an impasto technique. I paint the image in large strokes adding volume to the surface of the canvas.”

Early years and school

Anna was born in Georgia and spent the earliest years there, surrounded by warm sunlight and clean beaches. Unlike the other girls in her age she was asking her parents to buy her a boat and a fishing rod, as the sea itself and marine creatures always
amazed her. She used to go fishing with her dad but once he caught a fish she begged him to let it go, and he did. When Anna was 10, her parents moved to Ukraine, to the suburbs of Odessa city.

As the artist says, she never noticed a difference. The same sea and pretty fish, the same openminded people with good sense of humor. Anna enjoyed her childhood and her parents called her “mermaid” as she spent the days long on the beach, made sand castles and observed people around. Since childhood she noticed the slightest details, that people usually not pay attention to. She loved discovering the closest to the house beach, and found some ancient fossils and an ammonite there. They were a pearl of her collection of sea treasures.

Anna went to the private school in Odessa and enjoyed her schoolyears. It was a school specialized in English and French language. Anna was into French, and studied it deeply even with a home teacher. She ended up reading the books in French and watching French series easily. Together with French Anna was interested in history of French art. Her home teacher had a bachelor`s in Theoretical art as well, that`s why he told her a lot of interesting things about artists form France. The girl started to catch interest in Paul Gauguin`s art.

“I love the colors, they are so juicy I would say. I mean when you look at his paintings it looks like he took the richest and deepest colors and put them on canvas. His artworks became a big inspiration for me as well as a push to become an artist. I started from Acrylic paints. I used to paint our home, our garden and our vineyards. The latest I loved the most, as each grape has its own unique color reflected with the rays of sun.

At the very beginning I was a bit afraid of making my art in public, it was something intimate for me, I didn`t want another people to follow the movements of my brush, but then I let these thoughts go and went back to what I loved in childhood: the sea, and the marine creatures, that`s why I was taking canvas and doing my art on the beach.  I dreamed of studying art and I worked hard to pass the entrance examination and I entered Kyiv Academy of Arts and Design by Mikhail Boychuk”

University and adulthood

It was a big stress for Anna to leave her home and her family and move to another city. “It was a pity for me to know that they don`t have any Art education institutions in Odessa.” But now the artist recalls university years with excitement. It was an important experience for Anna, she got an opportunity to rely on herself and to find the ways out of difficult situations by herself.

Anna was interested in history of art and was reading a lot of literature about impressionist and expressionist schools of art. She was practicing a lot in creating paintings with watercolor and acrylic paints and didn`t like graphics classes. She loved to play with colors and she was looking for the most saturated colors in color palette. This research led her to oil paints. “It was a crucial moment in ,y life, I realized that I found the colors I enjoyed. I loved everything about oils: texture, volume, color saturation. It took me a long to master this technique”.

The artist graduated and got her bachelor’s. The first thing she did – travelled back to the place she was born to refresh the old child memories and see her relatives. She spent 3 months there and wend to Odessa. “My mom was asking me to make her portrait and I was always postponing this, as I was not sure in my skills, but finally I managed to do a good portrait for her and for dad, they were pleased.”

Then in Odessa anna met a soulmate on one of the exhibitions. This meeting was a turning point in her life, they both ended up in Kharkiv. Anna never considered this city as the one where she could live happily, but her opinion changed as she came there.

“I was happy to find a place where I could feel happy and safe as well as create my art and share it with people all over the world.”

The artist had a plenty of travel experience, but still she says, that the best places she ever knew are her home in Georgia and her home in Odessa. She always recalls these places with warmth.

"My art has long been an expression of my dreams. I’ve always dreamed of living in a small Mediterranean town, having my own studio, strolling by the sea, sketching and creating more and more new canvases. My dream found its reflection in my paintings. The sea has become my greatest source of inspiration. Sea abstract landscapes, color palettes reminiscent of Italian and Spanish towns, portraits of animals from exotic countries — I put a piece of my desire into each artwork.

A significant stage of my artistic journey involves paintings composed of multiple color blocks. Their palette is also aligned with seascapes. Studying the works of the great masters Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman, I reinterpreted their approach, softened it slightly and applied it in my paintings.

Now my dream has come true and, I believe, largely thanks to my paintings. Now I work in a studio overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Changes in my life have inspired me to work more energetically, more expressively. I use small, precise strokes, filling the canvas with patches of color and details. My artworks radiate with even more light and optimism, and I believe they help viewers focus on desires and achieve them."

Balina is a talented Ukrainian artist who currently resides and works in Turkiye. She embarked on her artistic career more than 25 years ago. Throughout this time, Balina has developed her own unique style and found admirers of her art both in Ukraine and in Europe. She has experience in teaching painting, mentoring and conducting masterclasses. The artist uses acrylic, oil paints and Dutch gold leaf in her works.

Balina is a regardful colorist. Her interaction with color is impressive. To fully unleash the palette's potential, Balina employs large blocks of color that follow one another. This series of her works appeals to connoisseurs of minimalist abstract geometry. Another direction in her art is expressive abstract painting, where an intuitive approach to creativity is blends with precise color solutions.

"If I were asked to describe my art in one word, I would say it is “Exploration”. I look for new technical solutions, refined perfect forms. I aspire to new ideas and motives, looking for new sources of inspiration and accepting new challenges. My paintings seek resonance with their viewers, their emotions and impressions, and, fortunately, always find it. My search has been going on for as long as I can remember and I'm not going to stop.

Everything new inspires me: places, encounters, things and impressions. I love traveling and discovering cities and countries. Metropolises with their distinct street culture particularly uplift me. Sometimes the impression is so profound that on my way back to the studio, I already know what kind of artwork I want to create.

My love for change pushes me to constant experiments. I explore different directions and methods. Nature enthuses me and I create abstract landscapes. Recognized masters of pop art inspire me to craft playful and paradoxical paintings in that style. The streets of Berlin, Athens and Istanbul spark a desire to create graffiti-inspired paintings."

Nastya Krykun is a young energetic artist from Ukraine who works in her own unique style. Nastya was born and raised in the eastern part of the country. She has been drawing since she was a child. Later she pursued painting studies at the Academy in Kharkiv. Nastya creates abstract canvases, as well as works in the genres of pop art and graffiti art.

The artist uses acrylic, oil, and spray paints blending various techniques of applying paints to canvas. Her artworks are always optimistic, brimming with her own energy, and, sometimes, the artist's sense of humor. This is the art that will make you smile.

"Painting is my salvation. A year ago, when all external supports collapsed, art became my new foundation. Having gone through a challenging period in life, I personally discovered the profound healing power of art. The therapeutic effect of my paintings is felt not only by me during the process of creation, but also by my viewers. Abstract painting helps me most accurately express emotions, experience them, and let them go.  I follow an intuitive approach, focusing on what is happening inside me, listeningto my feelings and allowing my hand freely apply  strokes on the canvas. I like to work with large color patches, combine shades of the same color and add vibrant accents afterwards.

When I find myself in front of a white canvas, arranging my materials and brushes, it resembles immersion in meditation. I have been exploring meditative and spiritual practices for a long time, and I strive to endow each of my paintings with the energy of harmony and light. There are two moments that captivate me above everything else: when I first touch a clean canvas with a brush and when I look at a finished painting in the studio. This is how I see the path that I have traversed, and I thank myself for trusting inspiration and the world."

Kris, a young Ukrainian artist, was born in Mariupol, a city that is now practically demolished. Kris managed to escape and leave her hometown before it was completely seized. Currently, Kris is in a safe place, traveling extensively, and continuing to create her paintings. Kris studied at the Art Design Academy in Kharkiv and also took private painting lessons. Her unique worldview, exploration of esotericism, and philosophy are reflected in her works. Kris' paintings are full of optimism and seem to proclaim triumph of good over evil. She prefers to work with acrylic paints, complementing them with oil and Dutch gold leaf. A distinctive feature of Kris' artistic style is the chaotic brushstrokes combined with splatters and dotted strokes.

"My art doesn’t have a single vector. I am thrilled by the opportunity to express myself in various facets of abstract painting. Geometric abstractions with their refractions and play of forms, expressive painting, where color and the artist's hand reign supreme, graphic canvases and minimalism — I’ve never sought to choose just one. The most important thing for me is to express emotion, create a mood and allow the viewer to experience a new impression.

Since my youth, I was inspired by monumental paintings, interior murals, and wall art. Now I create vast canvases that become separate universes, drawing attention. As I work on them, I feel how with every stroke, I infuse them with my own energy. Natural textures, captivating landscapes, and my own emotions serve as motifs for my works, which I express through form and color."

Svetlana Kalinina is a Ukrainian artist whose works are found in private collections in Europe and the United States. Svetlana was born and studied in Kharkiv, she graduated as a muralist from the Art Design Academy. Her career as an artist began over 20 years ago.

As an artist, Svetlana chooses an eclectic approach to art. Her paintings hint at different eras and styles. Her method involves a combination of brushstrokes, touches of palette knife, work with acrylic, oil and leafing. One of the distinctive directions in her creative work is a series of artworks created using the impasto technique.

Svetlana regards helping others as one of the missions of her artistic journey. She takes care of the animals that have suffered due to the events in Ukraine, making donations from each artwork.

“I'm a Ukranian modern artist with my personal vision of abstract painting. In creating process I use images-symbols of men and women in their own outer space to convey the inner impulses and light of human heart.

Anastasia used to take inspiration in local people and painted outside a lot. Anastasia
was a good student and was sincerely interested in studying process

“ I could see the fire of interest in her eyes when she started working on her art, she loved colors, and sometimes she was criticized for being too “extra”.

“Black and white color paintings can also be very attractive”

Lisa is a young and prospective artist, who is in love with creating modern minimalist painting in black and white color. She creates the artworks like a musician and the brush in her hands is like a conductor`s tool. You can literally admire her paintings for hours as after black and white color scheme she hides a plenty of shades, bluish, greenish or pinkish ones.

Early years

Lisa Solo was born in a family of intelligentsia, her father was a math professor at the university and mom was a scientist. They considered Lisa as a future scientist too, and since the early childhood she was taught by home teachers. She loved the science, but not as a scientist but as an artist. All these chemistry molecules looked exciting for a little girl as she considered them as small beautiful pictures in textbooks rather than objects for a deep study.

Actually, the first artworks by Lisa included microorganisms and molecules. Parents disrespected this attitude towards science and were rather strict to her. Lisa recalls that her parents forbade teachers to let her draw a lot during the lessons, that`s why being a child she already had to consume boring scientific dry information without visual support. Still Lisa was rather optimistic person, and parents` strictness didn`t interfere her from making her art late at night under the blanket. She hid her little drawings under the pillow and was waiting for the time when he could leave the house and drop this boring to her science and immense herself in painting process.

School years

Lisa was studying in a public school in Kyiv, she was a smart girl and could literally handle any discipline at school. Moreover, she had private lessons with piano teacher. She had schedule for every day and it was full, no time for personal life at all. But this lasted only until teenager years hit her, and she started her small rebellion.

When she was 14 she used to miss some of the classes at school and just escape to her granny house where she could just paint as much as she wanted. Her granny supported Lisa a lot.

After finishing school Lisa was supposed to enter Engineer studies faculty and even passed all the exams on a high grade, but then she abandoned this idea. Parents were desperate but Lisa realized that it was a high time for her to build her own way. “It was a difficult decision for me, I didn`t want to make my parents upset, as I knew they loved me a lot, just wanted the best future for me, but I couldn`t just waste 4 years of my life at the university I didn`t like”. Lisa decided to take a gap year and take a decision regarding your future. She temporarily moved to her granny and started her search.

University years and adulthood

She knew that the main area of her interest was Art, that`s why with the help of her granny, she got the opportunity to attend private classes with Art teacher who prepared her for entering the university.

She passed the exam and entered  Kyiv State Institute of Decorative Arts and Design. M. Boychuk.

“I tried to use these 4 years of study to make up for the lost, as all I did as a school child is learned all the school subjects perfectly. Also, I had a part time job after university to pay for piano classes, as I`m still in love with this instrument and many of my paintings are inspired by piano melodies”.

Lisa confess, that she stopped doing one thing that wouldn’t let her enjoy her life fully. She stopped being perfect in everything.

“That helped me to make my art as you can see it now. It`s an art of imperfection, I mainly use abstract shapes and figures, avoid academism and never ever create my works without piano sounds on the background. Actually, all of my black and white artworks are the piano melodies, which I put on canvas in the way I imagine them, the more shades the paintings have, the more complicated and ear caching song is.”

 Lisa moved to Kharkiv when she was 22 and made several successful exhibitions there, and caught the attention of art lovers. “I understand that the paintings I create and sell will most likely hang in someone`s home or office. And I enjoy this feeling that people will have not just a painting on their wall, but a melody, a melody, which is like a sunlight reflected through the prism, reflected through my personal emotions and set on canvas”.

"I cannot conceive of myself apart from painting. It's more than a job or a hobby — art is my life. My first memories from childhood are connected with drawing, my dreams revolve around traveling, visiting museums and learning the art of painting. My greatest achievements lie in capturing the essence of different states and evoking the moods my paintings create.

I travel extensively, and each new place leaves its mark on me. Whether I find myself amidst mountains or by the sea, observing nocturnal streets or morning rain, I discover inspiration for my creative process. Anything can become an impetus: the delicate veins on a leaf, a glimmer on a car window, a majestic landscape, or a sudden smile from a passerby. I like to jest that I have a camera built inside me that captures these moments on film. Then, in my inner laboratory, these shots manifest themselves onto the canvas."

Nelia is a young Ukrainian artist whose captivating artworks have found their way into private collections worldwide. Nelia received a bachelor's degree from the Art Design Academy in Kharkiv, majoring in artistic illustration and graphic design. It was during her student years that Nelia embarked on daring experiments With a creative career spanning a decade, Nelia has developed her distinctive artistic style.

Her portfolio now showcases a remarkable collection dominated by expressive and geometric abstractions, brought to life on canvas using acrylic, oil paints as well as an array of other artistic materials.

"Among all genres and directions, abstract painting is my sanctuary where I can release control and simply create. They call my works expressive, vibrant, and extraordinary, but to me, they are a reflection of my state of mind, a sudden snapshot of what excites and delights. I’m told they are saturated with the sunlight and my sense of humor, and then I answer: “So what I create will serve as support for someone.”

I can’t see the point in dull tones and vague contours. For me, it's all about the flash, the emotional peak, the flight. I blend pure geometric abstractions with patterns and quite recognizable characters. I love to experiment and never limit myself to just a palette of paint and brushes. There is everything in my studio — aerosol cans, stencils, pastels and ink, colored crayons and all sorts of artistic materials. And I combine, mix, and complement them all in my art."

Farida is a well-known painter, muralist from Türkiye. Her canvases grace exhibitions in Antalya and Istanbul, as well as private collections in Ankara, Izmir, Bodrum and beyond, spanning the European Union, Georgia and the USA. Born in Central Asia, she pursued her artistic education there but eventually moved to Turkey to forge her path as an artist.

Her artistic direction lies in space embellishment and crafting monumental modern figures. Her works can be seen in malls, theme parks, hotels, exhibitions and cultural festivals. Always extraordinary, her creations captivate the eye. Fairy-tale characters standing up to 5 meters tall, forest spirits, handcrafted mountains and waterfalls, Venetian gondolas and giant clocks — Farida's ideas truly know no bounds.

As a painter, Farida creates a series of expressive abstract paintings following the method of intuitive creativity, as well as representational paintings inspired by her travels on motorcycle. Seas, mountain lakes, waterfalls and gorges become a source of inspiration for her art. Her pieces are born through innovative techniques and the fusion of paint application methods. These canvases hold great appeal for modern collectors.

"I believe that art is a bridge between eras, as it is through artistic creations that different epochs and civilizations connect. In my paintings, I also try to reproduce the images and emotions that will pave this bridge from the present into the future.

Genre-wise, I enjoy working with abstract landscapes. I am inspired by nature in the early morning, fog over the water, calm sea, low pre-rain clouds. I prefer a restrained palette, using tones rather than bold colors. I call this combination of colors mother-of-pearl. My landscapes are minimalist but recognizable, carrying the essence of the place that inspired me to create them. Another aspect of my art lies in portraits of people and animals. Here, I allow myself to experiment with color and techniques. These paintings are mythical and each image depicted on them can be interpreted as a symbol or a sign."

Karyna is a professional artist from Ukraine. She was born, studied and worked for a long time in Kharkov. She holds a degree in monumental art from the Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts, has been involved in wall painting, interior design, and art history. She delved into the artifacts of Minoan Crete civilization, visited the island of Crete for her research, and engaged with contemporary Greek masters.  Exploring the entire island on a bicycle, she made numerous sketches that later became the foundation of her paintings. Now she is fully focused on creating abstract artworks. The uniqueness of Cretan art is reflected in her series of portraits.

"When creating paintings, what matters most to me is being genuine, not hiding anything from the viewer and giving complete freedom to my imagination. Paintings truly captivate and energize when the artist pours their inner strength into them.

I love working with large patches of color, blending shades of blue and turquoise with warm, sun-kissed hues. My inspiration often comes from lakes and rivers — spending time with my son by the water is my favorite pastime.  To convey my sense of fullness in these moments, seeing myself reflected and extended in my child, I paint large strokes, creating the illusion of a mirrored surface on the canvas. It's as if the painting has its own reflection, doubling the vibrant, rich colors.

Another direction of my work is graphic abstractions, executed monochromatically with delicate, graphic lines. For me, this is a series about the resilience and fragility of each of us. It was born out of my internal transformation associated with recent events."

Kate is a graduate of Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts. Together with her son, she had to leave her city because of the war, but despite all the difficulties, Kate never abandons the creative process, she constantly seeks fresh solutions for her paintings. Being a skillful colorist, she crafts remarkable images through the interplay of color and form. In Ukraine, Kate participated in group exhibitions, hosted two personal exhibitions, and curated art projects.

Kate works with acrylic and oil paints, favoring large canvases for her artwork. Her pieces have been exhibited in the EU countries, as well as in Ukraine, Turkey and the USA. Kate's paintings focus on the diversity of life, its ups and downs, its rebirth and the emergence of something new.

Energy makes our world move. While creating a new artwork I always try to depict how movements, which might seem chaotic at first, form vivid images inspiring us to move to new achievements and never give up. Wide brushstrokes are preferred as they fully render the great power of the human mind and soul that I try to embody on a canvas.

Nora

View all works

Nora was born in Kharkiv

When she was a child, she was into music. She attended piano and chorus classes and had dreams to become a great musician. 

When Nora was in high school, she started getting interested in art. She began to think about the possibility of making her favorite hobby her profession as well.

Initially, Nora was going to become a designer, as it was a relevant profession associated with using colors and shapes. Nora was trying to create her own small production of hand-made clothes with unique designs, which she created by hand. However, the artist realized that this activity was not enough to make all her ideas come true.

Having visited the exhibition "Ambivalence" in 2014, arranged by the Ukrainian art dealer Aleksandr Kuzminetsky, the artist realized that she saw the only way for herself - abstract art.

"Abstract art has no boundaries, it is not burdened with rules. Standing in front of a blank canvas, I realize that I will never run out of ideas. As soon as I dip my brush in paint, ideas will pour out on their own."

Then the
artist joined the Ukrainian Association of Artists, where she met a huge number of talented and creative people who helped her understand what it means to create paintings based on emotional impulses or emotions associated with positive or negative experiences.

Start of career

She started her career while getting education at the university. She took part in her first contest in 2016 and since then has been a regular participant of plain airs and Ukrainian art exhibitions.

In the year 2019 Nora presented to the audience her first personal exhibition “Feelings” which received many good reviews from art critics as well as was warmly received by the visitors.  She has been a member of the Union of Artists since 2014.

After finishing high school, Nora entered Kharkiv Lyceum of Arts (2013-2015)

Nora also
received a formal education in Kyiv National Academy of Fine Arts at the Architecture Department of Painting and Composition, where she got a Bachelor’s degree. (2015-2017)

The artist herself admits that although she received a formal education, she considers herself to be self-educated.

"I remember that when I graduated from university, I was able to paint landscapes and portraits, paintings that require technical skills. However, later I realized that classical art does not give me the space for imagination that I need… then I found myself in abstract art."

Inspiration and artistic techniques

Nora mainly uses recursive techniques, as well as acrylic painting techniques. Her artworks are full of energy. She creates a new space on the surface of the canvas, adding wide brushstrokes layer by layer. The color palette of the paintings is varied. Nora's artworks are distinguished by wide brushstrokes and inner dynamics.

Nora creates paintings in two steps. The first step is getting inspiration. It can appear at any time of the day, and its main source is Spanish music, which is full of feelings and real genuine emotions, or sounds of nature. Nora usually jots down her thoughts, goes to bed thinking about her future piece of art, and then wakes up early in the morning to get to work as soon as possible. The second stage is the process of creating the artwork itself.

“I have no time frame for the second stage. The painting process can take one day or two weeks. I'm a perfectionist at heart, so I won't stop until I get the best result.”- the artist admits.

Nora is driven by emotions. Her state of mind is perfectly reflected in the paintings. Her trick is that she draws not only when she is in a cheerful mood.

“The art should show the artist`s real state of mind, without idealizing.” – Nora claims

The history of formation as an artist

The artist admits that one of her goals is to acquaint as many people as possible with the world of art.

"I'm used to the fact that many people perceive abstraction as random strokes on the canvas that do not make sense. But I do not give up trying to show people that abstract paintings are an explosion of emotions and feelings."

In 2017, the artist took part in the Art Twins Unity project (Leonid Kuchma Presidential Foundation in Ukraine), which was held in the Museum of Outstanding Personalities in the Ukrainian Culture. The artist decided that she wanted more people to know about her art and this exhibition was an excellent debut. Nora got her own admirers and a large number of people wanted to purchase the “abstract explosion of feelings” created by Nora on canvas for their homes.

After that, the artist began to be invited to take part in many Ukrainian exhibitions:

2019 - All-Ukrainian Art Exhibition "Charming and eternal", National Union of Artists of Ukraine, Kharkiv.

2018 - Art Exhibition in Art Village Gallery (Artyuhivka, Kharkiv region, Ukraine).

2018 - Art Exhibition "Magic of color" Historical and Architectural Conservation Area of Zhovkva (Lviv region, Ukraine).

2018 - Art Exhibition during the Cinemaway fest (Zhovkva, Lviv region, Ukraine).

Nora has never limited herself to creating paintings only for Ukrainian buyers. Due to her friendly nature, the artist made a large number of friends in Europe even before the beginning of her creative career. European houses also began to gradually fill with the artist's paintings, and more and more positive reviews were coming to her address.

Nora has always had a dream to cover more countries with her art and at this stage she is a member of the Trend Gallery team. Here the artist has learned to work with huge canvases, is inspired by the ideas of her colleagues and is not going to stop at the achieved point.

“At the next stage of my development as an independent artist, I will conquer exhibitions all over the world,” the artist says smiling.

Vitaliy Ladovskiiy

Vitaliy Ladovskiiy is a young Ukrainian painter who completely devoted himself to modern abstract art. In his work, he uses different techniques and motives. Often the source of his inspiration is landscapes, which are transformed into abstract painting. Vitaly also finds inspiration in his inner space. His works emerge from emotions, impressions and memories, which the author expresses with the help of colors.

“ I don`t like being in public and always do my art alone in my studio. But I really happy that I can share my art with the world.”

Early years

Vitaliy was born in 1991 year. His mom was a babysitter and dad – auto mechanic. His parents worked a lot and sometimes he didn`t see them for days. “I knew that they were working and never blamed them for a lack of attention or something. I was rather independent child, and at 10 years I already could cook a worthy dinner for my tired parents, I was proud of myself”.

Vitaliy has been rather introverted person and as a child he enjoyed time by himself. He had a bike, which he rode around the city meanwhile exploring surroundings. “I hade a close friend Max, he was such a lively and extraverted person, had a plenty of friends and played football in a school team. But I was not into this lifestyle, I just loved playing vid games with him, it was funny”. Ladovskiiy was into computer science as a child and dreamed to be a game developer. “I loved vintage games and even persuaded my parents to by an oldschool Nintendo, it was quite expensive, but they gifted it to me for my birthday. I went to the library to study information about videogames, and I was a big fun of them. As I switched to high school, my parents bought me a laptop, and I started to try myself in game developing, you know these simple games like Tetris”.

University and adulthood

Vitaliy had rather good grades at school and then entered the university easily, He chose Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, where he even was getting a scholarship. In parallel with the computer sciences, he started to catch interest in arts, mostly because of his university friend who used to create modern paintings. He engaged him in painting creation process and Ladovsky decided to try something new. “I never wanted to limit myself only with one area, and I never new that this my decision would change everything about my future plans and future career.” Vitaliy who is naturally close person, was involved into the meetings of the local artists. “They all are really friendly and nice people, by talking to them I changed my outlook a bit”. He graduated from the university, but his next steps were rather unpredictable.

The artist rented a flat in Kyiv, bought paints and canvas and started to create. His friends were helping him a lot and they even persuaded one of their teachers in the Art academy to let him join the classes, to get to know the theory and basics of Art. “I worked at office then and did small errands to earn money, visited the lectures in Art school and painted the artworks at home. It took me 3 years to get to this point where I am now, I had many struggles with finding out my personal style. Also, I realized that being abstract artist means to know academic painting, but avoid it in your work. It`s like improvisation in music, you should know the basics to do nice improvisation, otherwise you cannot sit at the piano and just start playing, it`s impossible.

Vitaliy knew that he had to do something with the lack of academic knowledge in Art, that`s why he entered Art Lyceum in Kyiv. And finished it successfully. Besides this formal education he took private lessons and worked hard to reach this success. “I believe that it`s never late to change your directions. Life is like a video game, every decision you make will change your life crucially”.

The artist believes that without his friends` help and support he wouldn`t dare to make this decision. “I`m a bold person when it comes to creating paintings, but not decision-making process”. The artist recalls his way of becoming an artist as not the smoothest one. But at the end of the day he found inspiration in nature and in people, as well as in video games. “Some of my artworks are straight references to video games, for example BIZARRE SIGN, ORANGE LABYRINTH, SILENT SHAPES, UNKNOWN FORCE”. I love what I do and I glad to share my art with the world. Also, I believe that everything in live happens for a reason and we all should listen to our soul carefully.

Helen Lamb

View all works

Helen was born in year 1970. Since her first art attempts in 6 years when she drew landscapes she could see through the window she dreamed to be a great artist. When she attended school, she felt really bored during all the classes except of art ones. One of the main things on her table was a sketchbook which she filled in with small sketches of everything what surrounded her. Teachers tried to do something with this but then just reconciled.

Helen`s parents supported her and hired personal teacher of arts to help her with preparations to the entering examination to the Art Lyceum in Kyiv. All the days round she studied academic painting, but she new that her goal was different.

Art influence

She was not a person of academic art, she always preferred modern artists with their brave ideas and she had her own ones.  At the age of 15 she got acquainted with Paul Klee, and one of his famous artworks Senecio. Helen was amazed by the bright color scheme and composition as well as simple forms which create something grandiose, the artwork she could admire for hours. One of the most important artworks for Helen is Fidelity of love, which is inspired by Klee`s Senecio.

Helen was born in a big busy city, in Kharkiv. The busy lifestyle of this city had a huge impact on her artworks. They are full of energy and motions, as well as color combinations based on the contra version of nature and city scape.

University years

For many artists who prefer working in abstract techniques the university years may look tough, as academic painting gives you completely different knowledge about art:

“It makes you create the artworks according to the rules, but abstract artists love ruining these rules.” 

As for Helen, she remembers university years with warmth, as she found a lot of people who supported her direction. The professors at the university gave her a space for making her all style rather than established restrictions. Also, Helen found many friends who were addicted to modern art their creativeness and unique outlook inspired her a lot. Among these friends is Kladov and Solo L. who now are the members of TrendGallery team as well.

Italy

At the age of 22, when she got her bachelor`s, she traveled with her parents to Italy, where they lived more than 5 years. These years changed the direction of her artworks to landscapes

“ When you sit near the sea, you realize that it`s such a powerful, even more powerful than any human being in this world”

 At the time when she lived in Italy, she started to experiment with color scheme of her paintings. As the artist says herself “It`s impossible to remain indifferent to the colors in this multicolor country. They are literally everywhere: in the reflection of sunrise in the sea waters, the colors of houses and tablecloth in restaurants, even people`s aura is so colorful”.

The artist started to catch interest in yoga and meditation, she read a lot of books about Buddhist way of life as she believed that only inner stability would bring her to her own way of making art. She found her personal interest in “walking meditation”, when you immense into trance state while walking outside.

“This type of meditation is about self-control, when your eyes are open and you are moving your body parts while walking, but still can concentrate on your inner feelings rather than outer factors.”

Helen managed to comprehend how to stay focused on your feelings while being disturbed by all the objects and sound outside. She did it through the concentration on colors of everything outside and her personal attitude and feelings from these colors.

Helen says that the ideas of below paintings was born in the trance states of mind.

Travelling to the Carpathians

Helen left Italy when she was 27, and it was caused by her desire to go back to the homeland and create her art there.

“It was my last ingredient in the recip of my own art, the feeling of home. I felt that I would never have this feeling of home anywhere, even in sunny Italy. Ukraine was in my heart”

The artist moved to western part of Ukraine and dedicated herself to travelling around this beautiful region. The next stage of her inspiration was hiking and Mountaiscape admiring. “The more I was thinking about my perception of the world the more I realized that I take inspiration in something big and powerful. Mountains, sea, skyscrapers ets. And in my works, I tried to describe inner feelings from all the objects of my admiration”. After her hiking experience, she was staying a lot of time at home and was just trying to recall the impressions over the Mountains she saw.

She brought a small notebook everywhere with her , she wrote down the emotions she felt at this or that time during her trips as well as made tiny sketches of the views.

Paris

As a fan of big and powerful things Helen traveled to Paris, as this is absolutely a city of huge size landmarks. She was in love with Paris and she haven`t made mistake when she came to there.

“Louvre and Versalle were awesome, but have you ever noticed how big all the landmarks are? These people knew what to build to impress the tourists” Helen realized that a weekend in Paris is nothing to get to know this city and to dive into it`s tiniest cultural aspects. She went back there in several month and lived 1 month in Paris, studying all the landmarks and streets accurately. No details were missed.

“It was exciting experience, I felt myself in another world, very unknown one, but the one which was getting more and more familiar to me with every next day.”

Selda (Epice) Ozudogru

A little girl who opened her eyes to the world in 1979. I started living with my grandmother when I was 2 years old. I have loved painting since I was a child. My grandmother always bought me paints and told me that I would make the world beautiful with them. My family used to say, "This girl will be a painter when she grows up" :). I was proud of myself as every picture I made in elementary school was hung on the school board. My art teacher always supported me and believed that I could do more.

 I started my high school education in Kalaba Girls Vocational High School in 1994. I was learning art. :) I graduated in 1997. It should have been at the academy now. I worked, I studied, I studied, I was drawing patterns as if I was crazy. 

In 2001, I won the Gazi University Vocational Education Faculty Painting Department with the 2nd place. During this period, I met many artists. I graduated from the faculty in 2005 and was then an educator at the same time. 

Between 2001 and 2003, while continuing my education, I gave painting lessons to young people who were going to take the special talent exams at the faculty of fine arts. Many of my students have achieved the success they wanted.

In 2007, I started working at the Antigone Art workshop. While I was continuing my painting studies here, I had many students and teaching children and young people how to paint was the best moment. At the end of the academic year, we opened workshop exhibitions. Many of my students, like me, passed the fine arts academy exams and started their education. A few of my students have been qualified to study art in the countries such as Denmark, the Netherlands, and Canada.

It is a project that started with the idea of ??“Art for All” by the University Society Association, founded by Middle East Technical University in 2011-2013. It aims to meet children who cannot reach art with art. In this project, it was our first duty to paint with children and teach them how to paint.

In 2013, within the framework of the AbbVie initiative, I took part in the project of exporting the emotions experienced by the patients by bringing together ?M?H patients with artists from all over the world. Each piece tells the journey of a person with their illness. My mystery was chosen by the jury of AbbVie representatives for this project as the most effective expression of emotions and was exhibited all over the world in 2014 and further. It was also used as poster images.

In 2013, the Ankara Bar Association launched the “Gelincik” project to support all women who were pushed, beaten, oppressed, subjected to psychological and sociological violence. I took part in this project, in which many artists participated, and our works became the symbol of violence experienced by all women.

After the accident that killed 301 workers in Soma in 2014, I took part in the art solidarity for the workers. The revenues of the works we produced were donated to the children of 301 workers.

I worked as a Visual Arts teacher at Art College (Private Arif Gürler Anatolian High School) in 2014-2015. During my tenure, I established an Art Club at the school so that children could be intertwined with art. In addition, by opening an art workshop in the school nursery, I also helped little hands to get involved in paints.

In my painting works, each figure has a meaning and the color I emphasize in each figure has a feeling. I take them to different worlds in places and create new stories. Colors and textures gain a new dimension every day.

Kladov

View all works

“I chose abstract painting because it allows me to concentrate as much as possible on the creative process and be in the moment here and now. Nature scenes are the source of inspiration for my artworks. It could be waves rolling ashore, fog in the park, dawn in the mountains and many other impressions from my travels.”

Kladov was born in a small village near Lviv. He has always been a person of nature. Since childhood he spent hours in the fresh air and admired the views of the Carpathians. As he grew up he started to go hiking and sometimes disappeared in mountains for days.

He left the home early. When he was 16 he entered the Lyceum of Art and moved to a flat which they rented with his friend, who was a local musician. Together they continued their way of becoming important people in the world of art. 

School and early years

Kladov didn`t like school, he missed the classes and ran away from school just to enjoy time with books or friends. At the age of 13 he started to catch interest in painting. His family was not rich that`s why he got part time jobs to earn some money to buy needed tools and canvas. He was interested in painting mountains and still has a plenty of sketches and unfinished paintings of the mountains. In the high school Kladov realized that he wanted to receive formal Art education as well, as he believed that he could make this hobby his profession as well.

 The artist`s mother recalls that she “has never tried to judge his decision”. She trusted her child and knew that he would choose his way in this life by himself. Kladov`s father was a trucker, he worked hard and sometimes was absent for month. Father was not a big fan of his son`s choice, as he always considered him as a future surgeon. They had a plenty of quarrels and misunderstandings regarding the Kladov`s future, but at the end of the day father accepted his choice and even helped him to enter the Lyceum of his dream.

“My dad was strict, but even he felt that I was mature enough even at my young age to take my own decisions”

University years

After finishing the school Kladov spent 3 years in the Art Lyceum in Lviv.

Lviv is a very picturesque city in the Western Part of Ukraine. It`s a city of musicians and painters, a perfect place to give birth to a new talent. Kladov was very hard working, his teachers remember him as an “always optimistic person, who was never afraid of implementing new ideas”

The artist recalls the time in Lviv with warmth, as he met a lot of good-natured and talented people there. Kladov avoids using word “talented” as for him it sounds rather offensive.

“I met people who were pro in Art, but none of them was born “gifted” or something. The secret of their success was long hours of work and self-discipline.”

At the second year of education Kladov started to practice his skills outdoors, He painted people for symbolic amount of money, and he got a lot of attention from locals. Initially the artist took inspiration only in nature but later he realized that people`s emotion were giving him not less energy for creating. The artist continued his studies at Kyiv National university of Fine Arts. Admission office representatives were surprised by his enthusiasm and eagerness to learn new things. At that time his works were far from real masterpieces, as the artist claims himself, but they had energy, that`s why Kladov was enrolled at the university.

“I have been to Kyiv several times before I entered the university there. I can say, that travelling to there and living there are two different things. You are becoming addicted to these wide streets and busy pase of life. Despite the busy lifestyle people there are openminded and active, they never stay at one place, the live their life in movement and this way of life is close to my personal ideology.

The best inspiration for the artist

After 4 years at the university Kladov moved to Kharkiv. “ I did it a bit late as Kharkiv is literally a student city, but still I enjoy living here”

Throughout the study years the artist travelled around Ukraine, he set personal record and visited all the big cities of Ukraine and discovered carefully all the scenic spots in Western part of Ukraine.

“I never wanted to go abroad, I knew that it makes no sense to go far away and search for beauty abroad, when we have our own beauty here in our homeland.

In his artworks he captured local fauna of western Ukraine, for example in paintings BIGHORN SHEEP and OX as well as PROUD DEER, LONE PREDATOR and RED POWER. All the paintings he made can be classified into categories in accordance with his travels.

“My favorite work is THE SUN OVER UKRAINE . It shows how happy I am to be born here in this wonderful country. When you sit into the train and look out the window you realize that you need nothing but these endless yellow fields and blue peaceful sky.

"I think big cities is a great way to explore your creativity. I love traveling and collect memories that I can later recreate in my artworks. I encourage everyone to experiment with new colors and texture"

Childhood and early years
Sergio was born in Kyiv; his father is Spanish and mom is Ukrainian. Since childhood parents brought Sergio to their trips. “They are people who never sit still. We went to a backpack trip once, I was 10 then and I hardly remember anything. I just know it was beautiful.” Sergio`s father was a musician and the boy often spent time with his dad on concerts. Besides, his dad was a big fan of modern art, he told a lot to his son about the history of art and even introduced him to the local Spanish and Ukrainian modern artists. Initially Sergio wanted to follow his father`s steps and learned to play the piano. “I imagined myself on a stage then, and I knew that I would never sit in the boring office to earn money for living. I remember as a child I made performances for my family and neighbors, kinda concerts when people just gathered in the yard of our house and enjoyed their time when listen to the melodies I played on piano.” 

It was just one stage in his life, and then something changed in his outlook after all the trips. “I remember this time accurately. We started our travel from Spain than traveled around the Europe and ended up in the USA. I remember Grand Canyon and those tall buildings in NYC, everything looked so grandiose and huge, I was 15 then and I can say that as a teenager I lost my mind in these places. All these emotions hit me and after our returning I asked my dad to buy art tools to me. I chose watercolor and canvas and started to paint these tall skyscrapers I saw in NYC. One of my favorite artworks COLOR SENSATIONS is based on one of my earliest paintings. And it reflects the way a big and crowded city looks in imagination of a little child. The painting IN MY MIND also recreates my feelings and overwhelming state of mind after a long trip.
University years
When Sergio turned 17 he entered Art university in Kyiv. “What I remember about the university is that I didn`t like their way of teaching, I didn`t want my mind to be restricted by the rules of classic art, that`s why I tried my best to create abstract painting in a spare time. My favorite lesson was the History of Art. I still remember the professor who was a big fan of what he did and his eyes were sparkling when he showed us each new presentation about an artist or a school of art.”
Sergio was stubborn and tried to protest against the university rules, as he believed that so many talents can fade away, if they are burdened with academism.  “He always had the things his own way, we all got used to his behavior at the end of the day, and also we all knew that it was something right about his protest. Some professors who strongly prefer classic art could not accept Sergio`s point, and they were sincerely surprised that this rebel managed to finish the university, but others knew that he bore something unique in his outlook” – says one of his professors
The huge influence of animals on art  Sergio has a big heart as well, as a university student he started to donate money to local animal shelters, often visited those poor animals and started his own page on Facebook which was devoted to the topic of “giving home to abandoned animals”. Some of his current artworks depict the animals (mostly dog) at the exact moment they got to know that they were adopted.

“People contacted me via Facebook and arranged the day to come to the shelter to adopt a dog or a cat. I came there as well with my sketchbook and did a small sketch at the exact moment when the animal left its cage to enjoy free life full of love and care. I sold those artworks and sent the earned money for charity, to animals shelters mostly. Sometimes I even visited the people who adopted an animal from a shelter, in 1-2 month after adoption and again made the paintings of these happy and carefree animals who knew that all their problems and stress were behind. I still use the images of animals in my paintings and I love playing with colors. The idea is to show the animal and a range of emotions it feels at the moment of getting a new family. I could really see all these colors in their eyes which I use in my animal paintings.  After this my idea of selling artworks to give the earned money for charity, I realized that the art can also be kind.”  Sergio has always tried to share emotions rather than pictures on canvas. That`s why he tries to recreate real feelings of real people or animals on the canvas.

"My works are a chronicle of my travels. I’ve always dreamed of being an artist, but I was afraid that I’d have to spend all my time in the studio, as I also wanted to explore the world. Over time, I found a balance between my two greatest passions in life — painting and traveling. And I discovered many similarities between the creative process and embarking on a journey to a new place, because no matter how thorough the preparation is, as a result, something new, unknown awaits me ahead.

I have been fortunate enough to visit 31 countries, and in each one of them, I found something that would enrich my art. Drawing inspiration from my impressions, I have created a series of cityscapes featuring Tokyo and New York, as well as a collection of abstract landscapes from the coasts of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, the Mediterranean, Adriatic, and Black Seas."

Igor Kuz is a young Ukrainian artist. He holds a Bachelor of Art degree from Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts. Igor's works have been exhibited in galleries and exhibition centers throughout Ukraine. He has also held solo exhibitions in Ukraine. Currently, Igor's works are being selected by art connoisseurs from Europe and the United States for their collections.

Igor's artistic style is characterized by bold brushstrokes, contrasting colors, blurred yet recognizable outlines of objects, and an amazing play with light. Igor masterfully captures the atmosphere of a city after the rain. Supporting and helping those in need is of great importance for Igor. He donates part of the money from his work to volunteers working with Ukrainian refugees.

“I work at the intersection of abstract and figurative art, which gives me freedom in both technique and subjects that I portray in my paintings. I have always been inspired by the plasticity of the human body, its strength, and fragility. This inspiration fuels many of my projects. I do not seek to reflect conventional standards of beauty or perfect proportions on canvas. My works are about real life, movement, and interactions with others. A central theme in my art is the attraction between individuals, the search for kindred spirits, and the creation of a unified whole.
My color palette consists of tranquil tones. I enjoy depicting the human body through geometry, revealing its facets like those of a precious gem. Landscapes and pure abstractions also form a distinct part of my creative expression.”
Nikiti is a young and promising artist from Ukraine whose distinctive artwork captures the attention of gallery owners and collectors alike. Born in Kharkiv, Nikiti moved to Kyiv for her education, where the artistic environment, urbanism, and fast-paced life influenced her artistic style. She graduated from the Mykhailo Boichuk Kyiv State Academy of Decorative Applied Arts and Design in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Alongside painting, Nikiti pursued photography professionally, with her photographic works also exploring motifs of the beauty of the human body, some of which can be described as bold.
In her paintings, Nikiti's style reflects influences from the Western school, while her portraits evoke innovative solutions reminiscent of her private studio work in Turkey. She continues to develop her series of paintings titled "Soul Reflection," where female and male figures emerge amidst lines and forms. Her minimalist, smooth forms are far from naturalistic depictions of nude models, hinting instead at sensuality and the exposure of the soul.

From
the lightness of silver leaf, glazing and varnish, to the cracking of the
paste, the sand or the silicates, or the grains where life goes on breathing
through the wood. The form always speaks through the subject, remaining sealed
like a meaningful emotional whole; the rest is left for you to contemplate, as
a spectator.

The conception of the surface of the artwork as
"all over", leaving no space uncovered, with the desire to create a
complete atmosphere without limitations.

Its textures and colors refer to the Earth's surface,
with its irregularities, the result of the passage of time. With an abstract
appearance, everything arises from the observation of nature.

Doesn't matter if that 'real physical world' is
manifested in dance, in painting, with musical notes, etc...; They are all
excuses to constantly enter and leave the spirit with the dance of emotions,
with the memories colors, with breathing and admiration... until I get there, I
don't really know where. And there I am lost.

I aspire, then, those 'vibrations' that the 'real
physical world' provokes in my spirit, and disturbs it to dilate horizons and
enlarge the heart until it goes mad from touching eternities.

I must confess that I am a lover of the most
contradictory realities, a loyal servant to my thoughts. My work is a bearer of
blacks and whites in my often glazed palette of colour.

Aware that my hands are the designers of the mysteries
that knock on my door every day, I make these mysteries mine, I lock them into
my canvases and I dress them up with paint, in case others should wish to look
at them, or even admire them.

The secret of colour, my main objective is to explore
the construction of silenced identities by the colour.

A visual and unique style materialized by the
expressiveness of the strokes, their intensities and their whims, combined with
the expression of light and shadow that makes an impact on everyone.

I consider myself a passionate about experimentation,
I am continually looking for new techniques and materials that can calm my
concern to create art.

I have a weakness for mixed techniques, where the
painting coexists with natural materials such as wood and stone.

This gives a special warmth and generates an ideal
character to the pictorial work for decoration and interior design.

Soy una enamorada de la Historia de Arte. Me encanta
dibujar lo que veo, en blanco, negro y grises, pero con los contrastes de
brillo y mate. Los relieves de las materias, las texturas que dan la pintura
encaústica y la madera, es con lo que de verdad expreso mi mundo interior.

Proceso lo que ven mis ojos de forma diferente; lo
destruyo, lo divido, lo desordeno y lo vuelvo a construir con lo que tengo a mi
alrededor para crear mis obras.
