Underground Ukrainian Art by Serhiy Kolyada
"Serhiy Kolyada got in hot water with Kyiv's art establishment with his ballpoint-on-construction paper productions, portraying Kyiv as a melancholy zone of shadows.
Check out his Web site (www.kolyada.com) to see his nude or semi-nude women depicted against shadowy backgrounds of corporate slogans.
It's art as social commentary: gutsy reflections on money, power and gender issues in Ukraine." ( "50 Great Things About Kyiv" KYIV POST, Oct 20, 2004)
politically infused ballpoint pen drawings have left him virtually ignored
by galleries in his home country of Ukraine. Publicity comes mostly through
English language media and a majority of sales to foreign clients via
private viewings and online galleries... Kolyada works in black ballpoint,
using other mediums and collage occasionally to add color. In 2006, religious
themes and "the mystical side of life" became subjects of interest
to the artist..."
