About myself and my artworks

A one-man band. An architect by training, he’s written film scripts, edited the first Ukrainian magazines on contemporary art, held Ukrainian-French meetings, built the first art objects/installations in Ukraine.

And painting, painting, painting – his passion, thirst, mania. He has been awarded numerous international prizes. One of the leading Ukrainian artists. He is looking for a purely Ukrainian dimension in the contemporary art space.

Petro Bevza: “Our task is to find a Ukrainian sector of transcendent values images, expressed in the contemporary art language.”
