Fine art, sculpture & photography in the heart of Kyiv since 1988
Igor Grechanyk (b. 1960) is a leading Ukrainian sculptor and a proponent of ‘imaginary realism’, an artistic style that is firmly rooted in the academy, but aspires towards a symbolist representation of the fantastical realm. Raised in an artistic family, he graduated from the Sculpture Faculty of the State Art Institute in Kyiv in 1984. His works map the collective unconscious, drawing inspiration from esoteric doctrines and ancient mythology. Grechanyk is a member of the National Artists Union of Ukraine, member of the Society for Art of Imagination under Honorary Presidency of Prof. Ernst Fuchs and he is a leader of the Creative Association “The Golden Gate”, founded in 1997 in Kiev. As a cultural ambassador of Ukraine, Igor Grechanyk has exhibited his work all over the world, and has installed large monuments both in Ukraine and abroad. He currently resides and works in Kyiv, Ukraine.
