"Andriy Halashyn's oil on canvas pieces are as layered, rich, and complex as the artist's life itself. Not coincidentally, Halashyn credits much of his style and inspiration to specific scenes, memories, and periods of time from his life. He describes his art in the same way he describes that life: "like a film, with layers one after the other," each composed of parts that are essential to the whole.
Halashyn's signature style -- for which he has been called an emerging global sensation -- hinges on high-impact contrasts. "I don't have limits," he says. "I like to mix politics with children's heroes, fashion with war, destruction with parties." For Halashyn, the contrasting elements -- topics, colors, sensations -- simply reflect life. "With every unpleasant situation, I try to see the positive things … and all of them are a part of our lives."
Today, Halashyn continues to travel, hoping to exhibit in additional countries and continue to transcend cultures with his work. He quotes Picasso to describe himself as an artist: "inspiration exists, it just has to find us working." He will continue working as an artist for the rest of his life, he says, finding pure joy in the process."
