About myself and my artworks

Malykh has a house in the Carpathians. Once we celebrated the New Year there. Wolves were howling all around, and the snow was waist-deep. You felt like having been brought to the ancient times by a time-machine, and the “shadows of forgotten ancestors” were wandering around you. Perhaps, it was this place that shaped him as an artist.

He grew up in Kyiv, studied in Moscow, but when you look at what he does – molfar! He gathers various boards, twigs, and paints them with secret signs – molfar. Even when he uses decent canvas/oil, he still creates magic!

Once, art was born as magic. Malykh continues the tradition, covering the canvas with secret signs only he knows. And since he’s an “innate” colorist and has an animal sense of color, the result is splendid. I’ve seen his works in modern cottages over fireplaces – the cottages turned into fairy-tale castles at once.
