“FAVOURITES”. EXHIBITION OF SERHII BIBA, AN ARTIST

Personal retrospective exhibition of the Uzhhorod painter and modernist Serhii Biba (born in 1966) called “Favourites” was opened on 20 January 2017 in the Transcarpathian Regional Art Museum named after Y. Bokshai. This is the third personal exhibition of the artist in Uzhhorod within the last six months.

The creative collection of the artist, the member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine and laureate of the Regional Prize named after Y. Bokshai and A. Erdeli, consists of nearly 70 works, painted at various times from 1988 until today. The artist experiments with shape, colour, texture. However, it is the colour along with the silhouettes of geometric shapes that have a strong emotional energy in his paintings. In his non-objective paintings, the artist boldly plays with vertical and horizontal planes, and the reality itself undergoes sudden and bizarre transformations. None of the exhibited paintings have names. This is one of the techniques of S. Biba not to limit the audience, but to allow perceiving the artist's world of images and symbols through one’s own imagination and emotional vision.
