Fine art, sculpture & photography in the heart of Kyiv since 1988
Anton Tarasyuk was born in Alchevsk, Luhansk region, in 1986. From an early age he painted under the tutelage of the best local artists. He graduated from the art school of his native city, but wouldn’t enter the academy for another 15 years, having devoted many years to spiritual ministry and to recovering from a debilitating illness. Wheelchair-bound when he entered the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture, Anton studied painting there for two years, choosing a new path in both his creative and personal life. Since 2015 he has exhibited widely with the National Union of Artists of Ukraine. In 2017, he showed his work together with Ksenia Datsiuk at the A. Belyi Fine Arts Museum (Chornomorsk) in a joint show titled ‘New Works’, and in 2018 held his solo exhibition ‘Liberation’ there. His works are part of private collections in Ukraine, Austria, and the USA.
