Denys Struk

“Denys Struk extracts national archetypes of folk art, adds layers of modernity and post-modernity. Creates picturesque canvases by applying paint in layers, using stencils.”

„Earthy, rich, expansive, spicy orange resembles the exotic aroma of India. You want to pour it in your hands and feel how it passes through your fingers like pleasant golden sand, leaving behind patterns similar to those painted on the wedding day on the hands of brides with henna. It’s hot and bites the tongue. Mediterranean herbs and flowers are spread among it with lemony and minty greens. The initial hot explosive color is gradually balanced by cold citrus camphor. It leaves the feeling of clarity and freshness on the lips, the feeling you have after the tropical rain.
The layering of colors, layering of aromas, layering of vibrations, and finally a feeling of perfect harmony.”
