Konstantin Savchenko was born on the January 9th, 1968 in the Ukrainian town of Slaviansk, in the family of the remarkable painter Yuri Savchenko, whose creative aura has surrounded Konstantin from his early childhood. The father's works and his passion for painting became a bright example and constituted the basis of Konstantin's creative route.
Frequent participation in numerous exhibitions during the study in the Kharkov artistic school, then in Kharkov Art and Industry Institute, gave the young artist the opportunity to acquire creative strength and to find his individual style. In oil painting, Savchenko is a wonderful colorist; he finds the finest color solutions with taste and measure.
The color is the main element of the artist's graphic structure. He generously shows the gorgeous feast of the colors of surrounding nature. Gold and olive, pearl and rose, and sky-blue tones create an unexpected harmony of color frankness. It seems like the color fills things with life, making them beautiful and meaningful. In each landscape, still life, and portrait; in his composition on the canvas; in the modeling of the form in colors; in everything that the hand of the artist touched, a deep feeling is present. The nuances of color and composition help to read the essential vivid order of the paintings and allow access to the internal meaning of the artist's idea.
The artist’s perception of the beauty of the native Ukrainian country is always spontaneous and emotional. The images of the nature gain a specific form and provide the artist with the inspiration to create series of paintings, where the expression, the power of touch and the saturation of colors are combined with fine moving lyrics and poetics of Slobojanschina - the historical Kharkov region. Along with oil painting, watercolor takes a significant place in Konstantin Savchenko's works. To his poetic soul, this technique, which allows finest artistic nuancing, gives way to free expression of feelings. The amazing delicacy of colors, the multitude of cultured accords, along with the almost audible musical tone that unifies them, constitutes the main feature of his watercolor paintings. These watercolors are attractive by their poetic tenderness, humanity and sincerity of the direct impression from the nature.
Savchenko's works are really manifold. Some of them are remarkable by their finest relations of tone solutions, by twinkle and play of light; others are specific with their tough objectiveness, scope and weight of the colors. Closeness to life and bright image solutions reflected through poetry are especially present in the works. Wherever his paintings are exhibited—whether it be in America, in Germany, in Spain, in England or in Canada—they are a true representation on the real Ukrainian culture.
Currently living in the Ukraine with his wife and two kids, he continues to paint in his free time while working as an art director at a college university. There is no doubt that Konstantin Savchenko's works will continue to give people cause to rejoice, while also keeping their artistic value and bright individuality.
