BIO:


Artist and independent photographer.

In his photographic practice, he often focuses on the combination of everyday objects and the natural environment. He records natural phenomena and human interaction with them and changes in urban space. Now he documents how the brutal and destructive effects of war are reflected in people and environment. Traumas are not always visible, but they bring both internal and external destruction, affecting the future.

Furyk is a participant of many individual and group exhibitions in Ukraine, Poland, South Korea, Latvia, Lithuania, United Kingdom, Canada, France, United States, Portugal, Germany, Slovenia, Austria, Italy, Hungary, Netherlands.

Currently lives in Kyiv, Ukraine.
