About Maksym Skvortsov

Real life Story. I was born in 1995 in Poltava, UA. Then I moved to Lviv to study monumental painting (LNAM).
In 2017 I graduated from Academy and created first in Ukraine Open Air Art Show, which I called "10 Meters". I created 10-meters drawing live on the main square (Rynok Square) in the center of the most tourist city of Ukraine - Lviv. The main idea of the show was to show young creators that you shouldn’t be afraid of what you are doing and sometimes it’s enough just to go out and show yourself. Then I became interested in many art organizations, one of them was "Brovdi Art" Foundation (which created an international competition for young artists - "Silver Easel"). We had similar ideas with them so a couple of months after the show, Brovdi Art and I made a 2nd "10 Meters" as part of their competition "Silver Easel" (on the main square in the center of Uzhhorod) to inspire young artists of Ukraine. For the show, I created pants and a T-shirt, which was hand-painted in the style of my artworks, in collaboration with designer Oleg Havryliv. It turned out cool and we decided to create a fashion brand. We presented our clothes two times on Lviv Fashion Week. Now i work hard on fashion brand based on my handmade prints on fabric. It`is called "HAVRYLIV" in honor of the designer. So when I create my drawings, I also think how these works will look not only on paper, but also on fabric. Over the past couple of years I have created 4 series of works (more than 50 drawings and paintings), the last one I am doing right now.
