About myself and my artworks

Petro Riaska believes that the emotion that is experienced and splashes out while working on a painting is extremely important. Therefore, emotional painting - it is alive, pouring, rolling, singing, dancing and captivating... It's like poetry and romance, artwork and comedy.

Transcarpathian artist tries to constantly see the unusual in the ordinary world. To find joy and spontaneity in everything. And by the means of art implement it.
