My name is Vitaly Tsarenkov aka SY. I'm a visual artist with a graffiti background from Russia. I focus on creating paintings, murals, and sculptures.
Creation and development of an individual author’s style become priority goal for the artist. His visual language has been influenced by aesthetics of 8-bit console video games and early 3D computer animation, Soviet monumental sculpture and Russian avant-garde, technological education and engineering drawing.
A combination of liberal and technical thinking finds expression in artist’s systems approach. His figurative method form around a thought-out working algorithm with consciously given stylistic limitations. Images and objects are refracted through a geometric prism of artistic view and get a new structural shape. Straight lines delineate polygons and build a faceted framework. Stepped gradation of light and shade conveys the depth and volume to depicted figures.
The artist is constantly looking for new images and symbols for expansion his sign system and creative universe. On the content level, the artist sets oneself the task to explore a man’s relationship with other people and the world around. In the aesthetic aspect, he follows a principle of laconism, using pure colors and form simplification to highlight the main thing.
Vitaly Tsarenkov strives to create original works of art which enrich an inner life of spectators and extend the boundaries of contemporary art.
