Sergii Radkevych is a muralist, who natural way combines street art and sacral themes in his works. Such combination seems to be controversial, though, Radkevych’s art is based exactly on the balance of modern frescos and graffiti. His wall paintings root from east Christian iconography. In his works the artist conjoins simplified religious symbols with geometric forms in order to create modern spiritual abstract form. Radkevych does street art and public art looking for various architectural objects that either out of use or remain in indefinite state and turning them into spiritually active space. Also, he works in painting and graphic techniques and art installation.
