Evgeny Chalyi

He was born in Ukraine in 1988. Since school times, the artist opened the ability in drawing, fine arts and the attraction to creation everything with his own hands. In the future, he wanted to become an architect, but fate ordered otherwise: he has been engaging in construction business in Ukraine and Israel since he was 23 years old, and only by the age of 30 he was able to realize his creative dreams into reality. The change of residence influenced the disclosure of the abilities.

New opportunities for creative development appeared with the moving to Berlin.

Travelling to new countries, the artist discovers new visions in creativity, is inspired by the architecture of the legendary cities, visits the exhibitions of his idols artists, is imbued with the architectural structures of famous masters.

What he saw moves the artist to the creation in Berlin in 2018, an informal concept,

where the two directions of his activities are intertwined: tattoo parlor and  master works gallery.

The artist is himself engaged in the development of the design project and its embodiment in reality. The desire and passion to create something unique moves the master constantly. The result of this we see in his work and individual style. In the design of the studio-gallery we see how classical plaster ornaments and bas-reliefs merge together with glass showcases, tables and partitions. New ideas and their embodiment in reality occur instantly! The desire to break stereotypes and passion that moves the master during his dream coming true, pushes him to creation of urban furniture for tattoo parlor from metal barrels and concrete. Heavy concrete countertops, sanitary equipment, flower pots made by the master, look stylish and at the same time rough, thereby emphasizing the filigree of the overall perception of the atmosphere as a whole. All this is the result of the subconscious influence of urban style and contrast of the city in which the artist lives and works. The same parallel can be drawn in the artist’s painting, where he is also constantly experimenting with styles and different materials, ranging from pencil work to chemical elements and their reactions.

In a short period of time, the artist has developed his own unique styles and techniques.

In 2017, a collection of epoxy paintings was created.  In the process of their creation, the master resorts to chemical processes, controlling them, changing the speed of chemical reactions, thereby creating unique images in such works as “Chameleon”, “Space terrarium”, “12”. Space theme is often traced in the works of the artist.

Here you can find images of alien creatures, astronauts, flowers or animals…

All these are the results of passion for astronomy, love of nature, animals, love for beauty… One of the favorite quotes of the artist – “The world belongs to those who admire it.”

We see in the paintings of the artist how boldly the passion for finding new images moves the master…

Rough brush strokes, strokes of the spatulas and palette knives give birth to more and more new   images which are so close to his soul, which he loves and hates so much…

The most appropriate styles to his spirit are abstractionism, impressionism, avant-garde and cubism.

He calls his direction and style in which the artist works “abstract surrealism”.

There is a work on the creation of a collection of paintings, where the master reveals his new style in abstract painting, at the moment.
