Anatoly Kryvolap

About the artist

Anatoliy Kryvalap was born on September 11th in 1946 in Yahotyn, Kyiv Oblast. In 1976 he graduated from Kyiv State Institute of Arts, department of painting. Later his life became more secluded. Through years 1992 to 1995 Kryvolap was an active participant of the “Picturesque Reserve” – an influential group of artists in the modern history of the Ukrainian arts, a group that stated that liberation of the realm of paintings from all features of real life is their main objective. He is also a member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine.
Landscapes of Anatoliy Kryvalap contain emotional perfectness, the atmosphere completely opposite to the glossy and urban world. They arouse the desire to become a part of the harmonious universe, to dismiss your sign beyond the horizon.His colors cannot be confused with anything. Monochrome pictures with enormous energy, hot colors, and encrypted secrets. Here one can see the Ukrainian land – warm, fertile, and friendly; and textured spots on the horizon a moon, a boat, a man, a horse ... The artist directly appeals to the emotions, the subconscious. His work is on the verge of abstraction and figurative arts.
