About Yuriy Musatov

Yuriy Musatov, ceramic artist from the younger generation, that has already established himself as the professional and worthwhile representative of the contemporary Ukrainian artistic ceramics, is reconsidering the traditional ways of working with ceramic.
His creative works exist beyond the familiar categories or kinds of art – easel sculpture, interior ceramic. His objects are autonomic and self-sufficient in the artistic field. The artist applies the question of integrity of the person in the post-industrial society. The illusiveness of the modern world is represented in Musatov’s works, by the dreamy and subtle constructions, tender as lace, interweaving of the ceramic parts.


In 2008 graduated from Lviv National Academy of Arts. Master degree.

Professional Membership
