The work of the sculptor Vladimir Mikitenko is a notable phenomenon in the contemporary art of Ukraine. He is constantly in creative search, surprises with unusual compositional finds, non-standard themes and solutions. The sculpture of his sculpture is distinguished by a bright individual character and acute emotionality. Favorite images of the sculptor’s work – a beautiful femininity, where he found various forms of embodiment, extraordinary plastic solutions.
The feeling of man-madeness is combined with inner warmth and humor in relation to the topic. This provides sculptures with active entry into the surrounding space, where it is pleasant to them to be a spectator. Intellectualism of the author, the culture of the genetic fantasy, contribute to the plastic unpredictability of the images created, and also cause a certain technological complexity of the embodiment.
Vladimir Mikitenko is a creative person who is in constant development, self-improvement, strives to expand the horizons of the vision of the surrounding world. It is a kind of standard of the sculpture school in Ukraine. Has its own unique manner, its character, its direction.
