    The series of the drawings “Fragments of vitality & morality” by Fedir Lahno is displayed for the first time. The drawings were presented by the author to the museum collection “Modern Ukrainian Fine Art” in 2020.
    “28 drawings made with a simple graphic pencil in 2019 figuratively convey the peculiarities of the history and everyday life of the present time, marked by life and death limits. I consider art in all its forms to be the basis of Fedir Lahno’s creative work, a stepping stone of art searches. It is where forms of his aesthetic and art interests start. Fedir Lahno’s creative compositions from the series “Fragments of vitality & morality” is a great path from Biblical to cosmic through everyday” – mentioned the leading researcher of the museum, art historian, Merited Artist of Ukraine Andrii Nadezhdin in the introduction article to the exhibition catalog.
