Vitaliy Gonikmanbrooklyn NY USA
I was born and raised in a beautiful old city Odessa in Ukraine. Odessa was my early inspiration for black and white cityscape drawings. Now I live in the beautiful city of New York that is spiritually so close to Odessa. Throughout my life I was trying to establish my own style, style that will express my inner world and artistic preferences. When I started to create surrealistic black and white drawings I felt 'this is it'.....I have found it and I named my style "Conceptual Surrealism". My main intent is to imbed a deep meaning in each image but leave plenty of room for the viewer's imagination. My favorite media is ink and pen but I'm gladly using oil paints, watercolors, pencils, and I love photography.
