“Time, like air, is both ordinary and invisible, making it difficult to grasp.”

Bohdan Svyrydov is a Ukrainian Neo-expressionist artist who creates captivating artworks characterized by bold, expressive brushstrokes and loose subtle drawings. The vibrancy of Bohdan’s color palette and appreciation for Wabi-Sabi, a Japanese concept that finds beauty in the imperfect, are hallmarks of his work. He explores the intersection of traditional art forms and modern technology, creating an artistic language that bridges the past and the future.

However, the essence of this creator’s work extends beyond style – it’s a deep exploration of the concept of time. The artist transforms the idea of time from a mere chronological measure to an abstract phenomenon that flexes with our experience. Bohdan imagines time as a mosaic of varied moments, each with its unique narrative, and conceptualizes time as a cultural narrative, leaving behind visual footprints that chart societal evolution.
