About the artist

I'm Ivan Kolisnyk. I was born in 1961 in Ukraine's Poltavs'ka region. I graduated from Kyiv Polytechnic University in 1984. Since then I have lived and worked in Cherkasy, Ukraine. 

I enjoy life. And I just love painting. And I depict everything that affirms life. Either a landscape or still life, portrait or conversation piece. 

It was important to find own painting style and feature. Not only Ukrainian artists, who I took lessons from, influenced my artistic style but also great masters of the past: Van Gogh, Cezanne, Degas etc. Artist changes during all the life. His style and aesthetic views change too. Only devotion to art has to be constant. I don’t like mysteries in art I try to communicate with spectator directly. 

As long as I remember, I admired painting 
During education in Kyiv Polytechnic University from 1978 to 1984 I took lessons of painting in Vassyl Zabashta's art school based in Kyiv. 
The biggest collection of artworks (about 40 items) belongs to hotel “The Ukraine” in Cherkasy. 
A lot of my pictures are in private collections in Ukraine, Germany, The USA, France and Italy.
