The first project of the “Cultural Place” is an exhibition of works by Lubomyr Martyniuk “Flower Retreat”. Large-scale floral still lifes and life-affirming landscapes in the modern space of the mall, reminiscent of the eternal aesthetics of nature. At the exhibition you can see large-scale canvases, reaching 2 m and impressive expressive implementation.
Lubomyr Martyniuk is an artist with extensive experience and a creative resume that includes more than 10 museum exhibitions. His works have been presented in many European countries, including: Great Britain, France, and Germany. The artist’s paintings are in collections in many countries, including Britain, China, France, the United States, Canada and others. The works are made in the technique of “impasto” – thick, sculptural strokes of oil paint on the canvas convey a living play of light and color. This technique was used in his work by the Impressionists and also the famous Vincent Van Gogh, so the image in the paintings looks very expressive, conveying the feelings and emotions of the artist at the time of creation.
