Ukrainian participant of Mural Social Club Festival – Alexander Grebenyuk had finished a creation of the mural in Kyiv, Sribnokilska st., 1. His mural is dedicated to the evolution of life on the Earth. More information and images after the jump!
“Synergetics is an interdisciplinary science explaining the formation of complex systems. It’s a global evolutionism. The main idea of my art piece: the emergence of our planet and the development of life on it is a long chain of coincidences. The image of man who is covered with plants symbolizing the close connection with the evolution of global processes”, says artist.
Grebenyuk had started his artistic career as a street artist in 2004. He participated many street art festivals in Ukraine and abroad. In 2011 he initiated a creation of artistic group called “Good People” in the city of Donetsk. The group managed to create five murals in Donetsk before the war started. Since May 2014 he lives and works in Kharkiv.
