project by Stanislav Silantyev, Chernivtsi, Ukraine.

“Art that is decorative by its form at first sight, is completely non-decorative by its content. Besides the presence of different elements that are originating from this or that ethnic group, such as symbols, signs and ornaments, in my work i mostly try to interpret my homecountry in an international cultural context. My artworks contain equal amounts of both irony and tragedy. Trying to avoid national stereotypes, in this case i am fighting to overcome existential moments, by emphasizing the values of individual content of personality and individual speech, and values of cultural context, on the other side. This context and its subconscious structure influences not only national feelings and beliefs of certain representatives of one culture and state, but also influences the feelings of future generations that are still not shaped in frame of a specific nation, culture or religion. As a result, in my case, compilation of local decorative patterns, colours and historical problems raises not so many thoughts, as it raises many specific acts of expression.”
Stanislav Silantyev

Stanislav Silantyev was born in 1987. He is an artist, art theorist, as well engaged in social art. He is a student in the Lviv Academy of Arts. Before joining the Academy of Arts, he studied the law at the Chernivtsi National University for a year. But then he understood that art is his calling.
At the first time paintings by Silantyev were presented to the audience in the exposition of the collective exhibition of the Union of Artists of Ukraine in the spring of 2011 in Chernivtsi Center of Culture "Opening Day".
A few months earlier, in winter 2011, a series of cards "MAIN" was published, which contained paintings by Stanislav Silantyev and poems of a young Ukrainian writer Oleksandr Gorskyi. The poems were written in Ukrainian and later translated in English, German, Serbian, and Swiss languages. The art project "Main" refers to the aspects of social relations in the sphere of love in the human relationships.
