Gankevich easily plays with public imagination as it used to be in “Fuji-Golf”, “Blinking” and "Condition of the Explosion", his past exhibitions- remarkable shows in the history of Ukrainian art of the 2000s. The artist is known for his outstanding "mosaic technique." His monumental canvases consist of small pixels, carefully traced particles, that become visually complete at a distance.

What is expected on the “special” project of the artist in Kiev?

Artist's series "Forever" introduced to public for the first time ever, as well as paintings from the series “Blinking”, "Inflorescence", "Subtle Grounds", "Condition of the Explosion". Additionally, the exhibition includes video highlights, assonant with the art from the series "Blinking".

"Thinking on Forever cycle, I was interested in the phenomenon of infinite division, which ultimately leads to nowhere," says the author.

"We selected the new "explosive" paintings of the artist and put together his creations produced in different time. This approach will help to show the "total whole" of Gankevich, and to "feel the artist", says the curator of the exhibition Natalia Shpitkovskaya.

“I am also experiencing the period of forever & after in my life now”, - says the partner of the exhibition Yuliya Gershun, TOPMODEL OF THE WORLD 2017, founder of the charitable foundation "Development of Gifted Children". “My dream is to open my own gallery in Monaco, where I have recently received the title of the 1st beauty queen.
