Moving and touching artworks by artist Iurii Denysenkov, who is currently based in Kyev. His art is both fragile and powerful, reflecting on Ukraine and the sate of war. The artist has also looked at fear and loneliness of a person's existence in an urban society.
In 2010 he graduated from the Faculty of Scenography of the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture, and has been a participant of the young art program "Genofond", organised by Pavlo Gudimov of Ya Gallery Art Center.
Art in challenging times can be a strong reminder of humanity, a language, and a voice to share situations and perspectives. Throughout this turbulent time, Iurii Denysenkov has continued to paint, with his most recent exhibition 'Full Room' held at Ya Gallery, showing works exploring memory, working with his family's photo archive, documenting, drawing and painting with great skill, scenes and surroundings, such as a table to represent gatherings and rituals, whilst using the object as a metaphor, noting how war has brought change, with the scattering of fragile memories depicted across his art.
