Valeriy Skrypka was born in the Ukraine in 1964, the son of a respected non-conformist painter and Soviet dissident. He received a rigorous classical training at the Ukrainian Academy in Kiev, but broke with tradition as he developed his own style synergizing realism, surrealism, Byzantine art and Ukrainian folk traditions.The artist now lives in the U.S. and exhibits nationally and in Europe.
  Valeriy Skrypka’s mystical oil paintings and watercolors are windows into a mysterious, Eden-like world in which time stands still. Executed with superb technique in a rich palatte of colors, his compositions celebrate the restorative, life-affirming power of art. Collectors and admirers of Skrypka's paintings will especially enjoy his recently published book -- a comprehensive retrospective volume complete with dozens of color plates and insightful text by the distinguished art scholar Sam Hunter (Professor Emeritus, Princeton University). Signed copies are available for purchase at the gallery
