Oct. 14, 2010 - PRLog -- Portraits, Landscapes and Still Lifes by Walter Monastyretsky opens on Friday, Nov 5th at 7 pm and continues through Nov. 28

“I see the beauty of the world around me and I wish to share my God given talent with my fellow man.” – Walter Monastyretsky

Walter Monastyretsky is a classically trained professional artist whose specialty is oil on canvas. Landscape, nature and classic still life are among the artist’s favorites, but the classic portrait is his forte. Walter Monastyretsky was born, raised and educated in Ukraine where he became a licensed Pharmacist early on. Yet his love and understanding of art was overpowering and he moved to Kyiv where he attended the Kyiv Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture. There he earned a Bachelor’s Degree and went on to earn a Masters of Fine Arts. His major was painting and his minor was Art Restoration and Conservation.

Before immigrating to the United States in 1998 Monastyretsky became well known throughout Eastern Europe exhibiting his works since 1981. The artist had received many awards for his outstanding works including “Best Portrait” by the then Ministry of Culture. Since moving to the United States, Monastyretsky’s works have become part of many prestigious private collections in over twenty countries and eleven museums. In addition, his landscape entitled “Lincoln Park” was presented to Mayor Richard Daley as part of Mayor Daley’s Ukrainian Indepedence Day Reception and Community Service Awards Celebration in August 2009. Monastyretsky has also participated in the exhibits of the Plein Air painters of Chicago. Included in this exhibit are a collection of beautiful Chicago cityscapes.
