Victor TKACHENKO lives in Toronto, Canada. Working primarily with acrylic on board Victor displays a mastery of line and color through purposeful brushwork and a palette dominated by rich earth tones thickly applied to the ground. Throughout the various stages of his work, Victor’s figurative forms are drafted with elongated lines, exaggerated features, and geometric patterns that recall the hand of Amedeo Modigliani and Gustav Klimt accented with a subtle cubist aesthetic.
Dominating his art are planes of soft light which intersect and overlap, objects and figures emerge from a dreamlike atmosphere of harmonious color while emotion and meaning are conveyed masterfully through bold pattern and vivid line. The feelings of melancholy, mystery, and wonder that persist in Victor’s work recall the style of Odilon Redon and Gustave Moreau and yet are uniquely situated in his hands. Victor’s work can be found in galleries and private collections all over the world.
