Together they were engaged in teaching activities. As to the presented exposition, the art critic noted that “...Ihor Lutsenko’s approach to the creation of compositions, the colour scheme is not similar to any Transcarpathian artist. Still, he draws from our traditions a lot, because we see here the themes of musicians, folk motifs that inspire him and he depicts them in his own way. This is Ihor Lutsenko, this is his face, which we have the honour to see here.”

The exhibition of Ihor Lutsenko will last for about three weeks.
