Mykhailo Fateev (Mykolaiv, Ukraine)
Abstractionist. Self-taught artist.
Canvas, oil, ballpoint pen, mixed media. 30×30 cm, 2020
The painting was painted in the first spring lockdown as a reaction to the unpredictable challenges of modern world and society’s unwillingness to believe in a new reality. Protests are mixed with a misunderstanding of the situation, which gives rise to the same ruthless revolt of “bees against honey”.
