Yaroslav Leonets

My name is Yaroslav Leonets and I’m a modern artist from Ukraine.
A few words from my life and biography. Since childhood, I felt the need to convey my feelings in a nonverbal way because l could not put them in words. I spent a lot of time alone with my own thoughts and feelings. And this made me find what I could communicate with the world through, telling about my feelings and a glance at them. Using gestures, facial expressions, and physiognomy. I could not convey what I saw around but I’ve tried visual art and gradually through various artistic images I found a way to reveal and convey what I really feel. I have always been inspired by the search for new forms of communication with the world; therefore, my research in childhood has turned into the work of my life. As an artist, I realize myself in various forms of art. I am engaged in painting, graphics, and sculpture. I’m experimenting a lot, looking for new ways to convey the reality in which I live. Often I synthesize various materials. Studied in Ukraine at the Kharkiv Art College, the Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts at the Faculty of Fine Arts, easel painting, and the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in Kyiv, monumental painting. My teachers are one of the best artists in Ukraine First places in a competition of academic and contemporary art. I’ve been working lately in the genre of paintings and in graphics. In my artworks, I strive to convey the beauty of nature and human interaction with nature. I also work on social issues, topics that address inner experiences and that highlight our connection to nature and identification. Environmental issues and legal issues. Through these issues figuratively l express my emotions and feelings. Credo: Art is the way of subjective communication with the surrounding world. Using various visual means to express unique, clean, childlike feelings.
