Chamomile Blues, Yuriy Grebenyuk (Uzbekistan) – Exquisite Art
A self-taught artist from Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, currently based in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Yuriy Grebenyuk is a Painter and Graphic Artist. She is also a proud member of the Union of Artists at the Academy of Arts, Uzbekistan.
Yuriy uses different techniques and materials – including watercolour, oil, and graphics – and draws inspiration from many directions in his work. However, nature is a common theme across his body of work, which includes many illustrations of natural scenes of floral arrangements. In his pieces, Yuriy enhances the strong dynamism of his composition by employing a broad, sweeping, multi-layered painting style.
To him, intense colours bring a painting to life, as they radiate energy and therefore spark emotion and feeling in the viewer. Yuriy uses a complex colour palette to express his intense internal feelings and temperament, allowing them to spill out onto the canvas as he works. Yuriy feels that using colour – in various combinations, mixing tones – enables him to dispel negative emotions and create a sense of harmony. He likens this to the feeling one gets when hearing the delicacy and subtlety of musical chords.
Yuriy’s paintings resonate in the hearts of many collectors and art lovers. They are seen in numerous private collections across countries such as the USA, England, Japan, India, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, China, Greece and more. He has taken part in several national and international exhibitions. He has also held personal exhibitions at the Embassy of Ukraine in the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Memorial House Museum of the Urals Tansykbaev in Tashkent.
