I was born and raised in a beautiful old city Odessa in Ukraine. Odessa was my early inspiration for black and white cityscape drawings. Now I live in the beautiful city of New York that is spiritually so close to Odessa. Throughout my life I was trying to establish my own style, style that will express my inner world and artistic preferences. When I started to create surrealistic black and white drawings I felt ‘this is it’…..I have found it and I named my style “Conceptual Surrealism”. My main intent is to embed a deep meaning in each image but leave plenty of room for the viewer’s imagination. My favorite media is ink and pen but I’m gladly using oil paints, watercolors, pencils, and I love photography. My other galleries are at http://vitogoni.deviantart.com and here is my zazzle store where you can find thousands of my t-shirt designs, mugs, magnets and many other interesting things http://www.zazzle.com/vitaliy?rf=23807762537083...
You can find my children’s books created by me and wonderful writer Anna Krayn here http://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?keyWords=vit...
