Bohdan Sokur is a contemporary figurative painter and he focus on various formal aspects of art. He explores categories of place and time by capturing personal memories. Details of everyday life and surroundings objects connected to the post-Socialist past of my country are very important to me.
He often uses imagery of a big city with large buildings, telephone booths, old cars and similar things because these archetypal images are familiar to us since childhood. His style of painting is expressive and visceral, but at the same time it is associated with the mathematical-like perception that I often feel.
He sees a possibility to show sincerity in his art and share it with other people. He thinks that doubt, indecision and mistakes are true signs of humanity. The reflection of these feelings and emotions in his art helps him to create a dynamic message within a stable painting.
