Yura Kimakovych, a native of Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine. He began his career painting and writing on the walls around the city at a young age. He discovered his love for creating art through graffiti.
Yura employs a great deal of thought arranging the shapes he uses, inspiring dramatic compositions and gestures in his finished works. His use of unique colors and compositions, his play with shifting shapes and surfaces, and his intense line quality are a contemporary counterpart to the post-modern masters working in minimalism and abstract expressionism in the mid-twentieth century. Yura’s use of simplified geometric forms, un-modulated color and hard-edges common in minimalism is perfectly paired with the spontaneous mark making that was common in abstract expressionism. These influences on Yura’s work exemplify a comprehensive look at contemporary, abstract painting.
