Oleksii Koval - Modern Artist
I was born on October 16th, 1977, in Kiev, Ukraine. I was addicted to art from my school years. In 1996 I graduated from Republican School of Art by Taras Shevchenko (painting class) and continued my education in National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture, painting faculty (V. Zabashta`s workshop) which I graduated in 2002. Beginning from 2000 I work in monumental art sphere, created approximately 100 pieces of art in Ukraine and abroad, these are frescoes, mosaics, ornaments, drafts of stained-glass windows. Coworked with Ukrainian and foreign architects, in particular with S. Mirgorodskiy, U. Ostapenko, V. Zavgorodneva, K. Lubek, M. Bizatti.
For a long time I was looking for the most appropriate technique which would help me to bring to life my ideas and harmonize with my affection. Destiny
brought me to the hot enamel workshop of Ivan Kyrychenko in 2006. I immediately realized that this was what I was meant to do and continued
investigating hot enamel methods till 2009 in private workshops in China, India and the EU.
Every day and every moment we face many holistic words - countries, nature and its elements, humans or drops of water with their micro and macro cosmoses. These words are interesting and impressive.
I open these words for myself and tell about them by the language of my own visual images using my favorite technique.
From 2009 I productively worked in hot enamel technique using different materials: silver, copper, bronze and gems. Inspired by different themes I create series of works united by common ideas and at this moment my collection of enamels counts about eighty pieces.
