Artist who paints soul. He has such a talent – to see, feel and put them on paper. And this is done via so delicate storyline and colorful performance that makes you watch and continue to ask yourself – what I have not yet understood, did not see? You have to return later, the next day, so that those nuances, answers and questions captured by Mykola partly reveal themselves again.


The art of Mykola is in the first instance very intelligent. It forces to a dialogue with yourself – and here it depends on us how honest we want to be  with ourselves …


And one more thing – in his paintings there are Volyn and Lviv, Lviv and Volyn – to different worlds which formed Mykola as an artist and as a person. About Lviv and about Volyn you can write (and paint) forever. In his work you first of all feel them – through a color, objects, perspective. And no matter how the Lviv and Volyn changed, no matter hom people seem to be, in Mykola’s paintings forever remains captured their very essence …
