Art of Victor Tkachenko

Victor works primarily with acrylic on board.  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 were drafted with elongated lines, exaggerated features and geometric patterns. He is inspired by everything, from street art to the Old Masters.
