Donated by the artist

Valeriy Skrypka was born into a family of artists in Zaporizhia, Ukraine in 1964. At 28 years of age, in 1992, he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Kyiv, Ukraine and since 1996 has been residing and painting in the United States. Skrypka’s work is exhibited in museums and galleries internationally. Receiving a rigorous classical training at the Ukrainian Academy in Kiev, Skrypka broke with tradition as he developed his own style, working in oils and in a proprietary watercolor technique. His work merges contemporary, narrative symbolism with an iconography of mythological Ukrainian traditions. As windows into a mysterious, Eden-like world, the paintings illuminate universal human experience and exemplifying the restorative, life-affirming power of art.
