Concentrated passion and irrepressible energy seem to be trying to escape from the paintings of one of the most famous Ukrainian artists Mykhailo Demtsiu.

Intense flaming paints burn, twinkle and vibrate, creating a rich emotional color harmony. Red and green, yellow and blue - like day and night, spiritual and corporal, excitement and calm. Pure paint on the canvas, like a mosaic that is close, but not one, is not mixed up. This technique of painting breeds the author with impressionists and post-impressionists. The master thinks of color, the color forms a form, and broad, expressive, daring smears conveys all the power of emotion, giving his works expression and internal dynamics.

Artist's compositions are not sketches from nature, but vivid images that are born in the imagination in the creative, sensual rethinking of what has been seen. The artist travels a lot, but the landscapes of France and Spain remain the most beloved. The sea, the sky and the boats merge into a single colorful ride, and we see no longer the real world, but a vivid impression of it.

Mykhailo Demtsiu's painting is temperamental and juicy. It is difficult to say what is the priority in his work color or texture, the picturesque illusion of a three-dimensional space or volumetric sculptural form. This mystery and ambiguity makes the artist's art interesting and attractive.

Critics call Mykhailo Demtsiu's painting a visiting card of West Ukrainian painting. It represents a unique allure of the European painting style and colorful decorations, which the master gained from the art of his native Hutsulshchyna, generous in color and emotion.
