Volodymyr works a lot with nature. The shape, volume and plasticity prevail over the plot in his works. The internal architectonics in the female image, which turns into a poetic and metaphorical sound of the image, is the main element for the artist. Volodymyr ‘s work is characterized by simplicity and naturalness, which are the criteria of beauty and purity of the sculptural object.
