On 22 May 2018, in the exhibition hall of the Transcarpathian Museum of Architecture and Life, it was opened a joint exhibition of the famous Transcarpathian artists Anton Kovach, Mykhailo Syrokhman, Vasyl Pal and Vasyl Kohutych. The exposition is titled "Graphics-drawing".

The exhibition presents about three dozen paintings by four authors – graphics and drawing itself. As one of the exhibition organizers Vasyl Kohutych told during the opening, the purpose of this vernissage is to prove to the public that Transcarpathia is famous not only for traditional realistic painting but also for other styles of fine arts.

Vasyl Kohutych himself presented a colour graphics executed with dry oil without solvent. By the way, some of the works presented to the public for the first time.  "Every artist is striving for a certain exclusivity," the artist said. “And I'm not an exception. I've been working on this technique for a long time, but I wanted to show my skills to people. Some works are not yet completed, but I am sure that they will be appreciated."

Except for Vasyl Kohutych, Anton Kovach, Vasyl Pal and Mykhailo Syrokhman presented their works.

"I study rhythms and small elements," M. Syrokhman, Honoured Worker of Culture of Ukraine said. “Something constantly lies, grows, blooms around us. And I decided to portray it in the whole series. By the way, the composition of these works – a series of graphics called "Shores" – everyone can fantasize in his own way". The artist presented also his works in "op art" – a style of the contemporary art with the use of optical illusions. To create it, he was inspired by the work of one of the founders of this style, a French artist of Hungarian origin Victor Vasarely.

The exhibition will last at the Transcarpathian Museum of Architecture and Life until 5 June 2018.
