About myself and my artworks

How does the ideal world of Volodymyr Yakovets appear before us? The answer to this question is not simple and ordinary. As, in fact, the work of the artist himself. Volodymyr Yakovets, with his penchant for creative experimentation and finding non-standard solutions, does not betray his own convictions. For him, it is extremely important to observe the classical canons of painting. On the canvases of the artist, everything shines through and is well drawn. He works with transparency and pays a lot of attention to it. According to the artist, this is what distinguishes him from other artists who apply paint very densely and then add textures. He also uses thematic multi-layering - cubic and square forms are a reference to op art, fonts are a reference to conceptualists.
