Oleksandr Lisovskyi was a member of the TOKH creative group (1986).
The artist uses the techniques of watercolor, gouache, oil painting and also, he creates collages and assemblages. In his works, Oleksandr combines the lines of the Ukrainian coloristic landscape, graphic search inspired by West-European modernism and ‘boxes’ – fanciful objects that include collages and creative reflections on different cultural phenomena.
The aesthetics of ancient photos appeals to the artist, his assemblages are completed with real household items which transform into the artistic objects in context of the work.
