Oleh Lunov was born in Kyiv in 1973. He studied at Art Secondary School and then at the National Art Academy. He pays homage to Viktor Zaretskyi as his peer educator having conveyed to him respect and passion for his métier. Since 1992, Oleg’s works have been exhibited in one-man and group projects both in and outside Ukraine (e.g. Yerevan Art Biennale, one-person exhibitions in Madeira, Rouen, Liege, etc.). He joined the National Union of Artist of Ukraine in 2000.
Oleg Luniov’s creative work is an auspicious array of genres and techniques. He is constantly experimenting with form, colour, size, format, while being always true only to his passion to what he represents. Combinations, as smooth painting and contrasting facture elements, large local areas and thoroughly sketched details, vibrant colours and monochromaticism can be called his hallmark. Having mastered numerous painting techniques enables him borrowing one technique components into another. So his exhibition attendees would never know what to expect. But whatever the artist’s creative exploration would be, his paintings remain recognizable. Variety made integral by the unique vision begets an extraordinary world, the exquisite and beautiful world of Oleg Luniov, the Artist.
Oleg’s works are represented in true connoisseurs’ private collections both in and outside Ukraine, e.g. in Belgium, Italy, UAE, France, Japan, USA, etc.
