About Kostiantyn Shyptia

I am Kostiantyn Shyptia. I was born and now I live in Ukraine in Sumy. I graduated from Sumy State University and Art School in my city. I keep learning and improving all the time. My mentors are contemporaries and great artists of the past.
My life, my joy and my work are my creativity. In my paintings I want to show the incredible beauty of life in all its diversity. The beauty and grace of a person in this complex crazy world. I want to imprint the ephemeral paints of instants of life in the endless stream of time,
human passions and griefs, reckless love and burning hatred, melancholy of loneliness and wild gladness, easy sorrow and unrestrained merriment. My artworks are in private collections around the world. In life, as well as in creation my motto is the winged Latin saying: «Dum spiro, spero».
