Ukraine-born artist Yana Movchan’s neo-realist work has been compared by reviewers to that of Velasquez, Colville and Magritte.
Yana’s paintings are held in national, public and private collections in the U.S., the Ukraine and Canada (where she now resides). They appeal to a wide range of connoisseurs and collectors, and transcend the genres of traditional and post-modern art. Now, with the launch of these prestigious limited edition reproductions, they are available to a discerning public.
Movchan herself says:
“My personal art is, for me, a paradise on earth. While I am painting I feel as good as a human being can feel, full of the greatest emotions. I pour the best of myself into painting and I want to share that with the world. Art is also my life’s search, and sometimes an escape to a better place. My art is my conversation with God. I love God – I love art.”
