Victor Tkachenko, is a Ukrainian-Canadian artist living in Toronto, Canada. Victor received professional art training beginning at age ten and was one of a few graduates to complete the extensive and rigorous program from the renowned Art School in Krivoy Rog, Ukraine. Following his fine art education Victor gained architectural training (graduate level) at the Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture in Kiev, Ukraine.
As a painter Victor works primarily with acrylic on board. He displays a mastery of line and color through purposeful brushwork and a palette dominated by rich earth tones thickly applied to the canvas. The physicality of his work is enhanced with accents of
ink and, intermittently, the addition of industrial materials such as varnish and plaster. Throughout the various stages of his work, Victor’s figurative forms are drafted with elongated lines, exaggerated features and geometric patterns.
