Volodymyr Kohut is the young expressive artist from Lviv. His attitude to the art he outlines as follows: “The sense of my works is in sincerity and primitivity of the images. Trying to put aside everything that we percept through the eyes, I strive to internalize the information like a child who doesn’t have any experience. I’m inspired by the movement, the possibility of learning the images from the stories of different people. As a result I am all the time upon the look; my conscience has always been in the state of experiencing.  All the characters of my works are the real people, who this way or the other influenced me or send me an emotional feedback. I’m trying to freeze into place such a situation regardless of materials I have at hand: ball point pen, marker – any instruments will do. That’s why quite often you can see the mixture of techniques in my works.”
