Khodakivskyi Vasily

  • Ukraine
  • Painter
It does not matter what is drawn, what is important is how it is done and what feelings are put into the picture.
As a young man Vasyl loved to draw and to paint and wanted above all else to learn visual skills and techniques. His perseverance was rewarded in 1986 when his application was accepted at the Art Academy of Kiev - known today as the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture - in the painting and monumental painting department. Vasyl graduated in 1992 after spending six years acquiring knowledge and learning fundamental theories in art. He began his profession and that same year he became a member of the National Union of artists of the Ukraine. A former professor in painting and drawing at the university, Vasyl now prefers to share his knowledge and experience through private lessons, which he gives to small groups.
Vasyl is strongly driven by his will to make art that is both complete and visually alluring. He works with acrylic, watercolours and oil paint in a style that is mainly figurative, looking to produce, above all else, something that can speak to everyone. Also, using a personal aesthetic approach, the painter strives to represent moments in life, bodies and landscapes, with simplicity and finesse that, after carefully being translated into colours, can reflect the enthusiasm and sensitivity of their author. Vasyl was also a street artist on the Greek Island of Santorini for several years. He made portraits and has boundless admiration for the female body, which he never tires of capturing. He also loves to depict seascapes and the many elements he finds in them.
