free counters Born in 1961 in Kiev, Ukraine, Yuri Shevchuk attended the Kiev Art School and later the prestigious Kiev Architectural Academy. Yuriy has adopted the practice of recording his own experiences in his artworks: his three passions, painting, jazz and historical cars have become the focus of his paintings. Since 1993 Shevchuk has been living in the city of Prague, which he depicts in many of his paintings and also where he exhibits his work widely. He has been described as an accomplished master, full of artistic and intellectual energy. Bewitched with jazz music he skillfully and rapidly sketches the cool and charming figures of musicians in action, showing the positive mood of jazz and the stunning spiritual intensity of this bright magical world. His lively and spontaneous paintings expertly translate the atmosphere and verve of the music, using dripping, seeping paints and pastels. Another part of his interests is retro cars. He does not paint cars as such, but tries to depict his emotional perception of retro style. So, the observer can feel spirit of the past on his works. Shevchuk, an associate member of the Pastels Society of America, has participated in numerous exhibitions and his work is held in collections all over the world. The clarity, harmony, the refined palette of colour and line attract sophisticated art and music lovers worldwide. In the presence of Yuriy’s paintings one can almost hear the blues, feel the beguiling emotions and impassioned feelings of the musicians translated through the artist; such intoxication supports the belief that Yuriy Shevchuk is undoubtedly among the leading contemporary artists exhibiting widely in the Czech Republic today. 2007 PASTEL SOCIETY OF AMERICA associate member Group Exhibitions 1993 - 1995 RAPID Gallery Prague (CZ) 2006 - 2007 ART Gallery Tynska7 Prague (CZ) 2007 Michalska Gallery Prague (CZ) 2007 - 2008 Art Gallery Laperuza Prague (CZ) 2007 118 SALON Des Artistes INDEPENDANTS Paris France -Catalog (FR) 2007 LIBR-ART Libramont-Chevigny Belgie -Catalog (B) 2007 ATR-EVENT Antverpen Belgie -Catalog (B) 2007-2008 Crazy Cow Gallery Prague (CZ) 2008-2009 Max Art Gallery Prague (CZ) 2009-2010 EEFineArtGalery Cambridge England (GB) 2010 Juli Open-Air Kunstfestival Baden-Baden Augustaplatz Germany (D) 2010 Oktober Open-Art Baden Baden Germany (D) 2010 Exhibition «Music and Theatre» restaurant «Gorky» Moscow Russia (RUS) 2010 10-17 november Exhibition works finalistst competition ArtPreview Moscow Russia (RUS) 2010-2011 december-january Galery Kaiserhof Baden-Baden Germany (D) 2010 26-29 december Gallery KINO and Gallery Art-Club 21 “Factory Stars Improvisation'Moskow Russia (RUS) 2011 3-10 january Gallery KINO and Gallery Art-Club 21 “Factory Stars Improvisation'Moskow Russia (RUS) 2011 25-27 february premium design exhibition «Biguteria»: «Factory Fantasy.Hollywood Legends» collection ART-CLUB 21 Amber-Plaza Moskow (RUS) 2011 1-30 september Prague through the eyes of Russian artists Russian Art Museum in Prague (CZ) 2011 Oktober Open-Art Baden Baden Germany (D) 2012 06 won 2nd place in international Watercolor Contest of IWS (International Watercolor Society) catalog 2012 - 2013 December - January.
