An early contemporary abstract landscape painting by Serhiy Savchenko, an internationally well-known Ukranian artist whose works have been featured by major galleries around the world and whose modernist and abstract approach to his art is admired and collected throughout the world by art collectors. His artworks evoke the senses from beyond the visual. They are intimate, sensual and authentic with adorning simplicity and deep expression. His brush strokes are organic forms that require perception through impressive multidimensionality and a sense of creative freedom, and explore a range of ideas from nothingness to information to humanity, one that make you feel the textures in your hands, taste them in your mouth and smell them through your nostrils.
This abstract and acrylic oil on canvas painting is among the early works of Serhiy Savchenko prior to his rise to fame and during the time that he is starting his artistic career in Ukraine that would eventually paved the way for him to becoming one of the most sought after Ukrainan artist of today. Savchenko was born 1972 in Lviv, Ukraine and graduated from the Lviv College of Decorative and Applied Arts in 1991. He is also an alumni of Lviv Academy of Arts which he graduated in 1998. His art catalog of works titled "Serhiy Savchenko and the enduring resistance of vision@, was published by ArtHuss, Kyiv in 2017.
