What will be at the Exhibition?
The concept of the exhibition is quite interesting, as holding it has become a good tradition for the artist. Every year on his birthday, December 19, Mykola Andrushchenko paints a self-portrait displaying the evolution of his styles over the years.
Specifically, at the expo each visitor will have the opportunity to see works executed in various styles and on various subjects. Mykola Andrushchenko works equally skillfully in genres of oil painting, glass painting, genre painting, still life, and landscape.
His works display an expressive decorative style, which manifests primarily in the emotional expression of each painting. The artist seeks to represent images monumentally and universally, to profoundly convey his idea through the dynamic interplay of lines and expressive presentation of colors. He also masterfully employs traditional decorative elements.
