Yaroslav Leonets

Hi, my name is Yaroslav Leonets and I’m a modern artist from Ukraine. A few words about me and my life. Since childhood, I have felt the necessity to articulate my feelings in a nonverbal way because l could not express myself with words. I spent a lot of time alone with my thoughts and feelings. And this made me find a way to communicate with the world, telling about my feelings and personal glance at it. But gestures, facial expressions, and physiognomy were not enough to speak with the world. 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 express what I really feel. I have always been inspired by the search of new forms of communication with the world; therefore, my childhood research has turned into the work of my life. As an artist, I see myself in various forms of art like painting, graphics, and sculpture. I experiment a lot, looking for new ways to convey the reality in which I live. I often synthesize various materials. I graduated: 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 gave me a MA degree in faculty of monumental painting. I’ve been working lately in the genre of paintings and graphics. In my artworks, I strive to obtain 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 this figurative topics, 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.
