My current favorite painting is by Igor Koutsenko. I saw his work at a recent art festival and he is not only adept at painting, but a master of several printing techniques as well—monotype, intaglio, woodcut and linocut.
He hails from Evpatoria, on the Crimean Peninsula of the Black Sea. Mr. Koutsenko's talent was recognized at a very early age and he's studied at several art schools and with acclaimed artists.
