Portrait of a boy
Based in: Canada
Victor Tkachenko lives in Toronto, Canada. Victor received professional art training beginning at age ten and was one of few graduates to complete the extensive and rigorous program from the well-renowned Art School in Krivoy Rog, Ukraine.
Working primarily with acrylic on board Victor displays a mastery of line and colour through purposeful brushwork and a palette dominated by rich earth tones thickly applied to the ground. The physicality of his work is enhanced with accents of ink and, intermittently, the addition of industrial materials such as varnish and plaster. Throughout the various stages of his work, Victor’s figurative forms are drafted with elongated lines, exaggerated features and geometric patterns.
While early paintings are recognizable for their use of solid line and bold colour that refer to Byzantine mosaic work or stained glass, his oeuvre is grounded, broadly, in symbolism and expressionism. Dominating his art are planes of soft light which intersect and overlap, objects and figures emerge from a dreamlike atmosphere of harmonious colour while emotion and meaning are conveyed masterfully through bold pattern and vivid line. Victor’s work can be found at galleries and private collections all over the world.
