Andrew Levitsky was born in 1961 in Kiev, Ukraine. From 1986 – 1996 he studied in the Ukrainian Academy of Fine Arts, becoming a Master in Graphic Arts. Since his student days he has actively participated in prestigious international competitions in different fields of graphic arts. His countrywide and international success is evidenced as well by the fact that he is the winner of 14 international awards.

Levitsky uses intaglio technique which includes different ways of work with metal – etching drypoint, engraving, mezzotint and aquatint. The methods he uses allow him to create complicated, expressive artworks, often filled with subtle symbolic meaning. His multiple talents and remarkable skills rely on the best traditions of graphic arts and therefore his artistic preoccupations are connected with a wide range of topics: nature, adventure, tribute to the great leaps in technology, science and art.

Levitsky’s artworks are held in public collections in Ukraine (National Art Museum of Ukraine and Town Art Museum in Kyiv and Regional Art Museum in Chernihiv), Germany (Society Dante in Munich), Japan (Tohoku University of Art and Design and Tama University in Tokyo), Italy (Civic Museum of Crema), Turkey (Istanbul Museum of Graphic Arts, Isik University, Museum of Painting and Sculpture and Tophane-I Amire Cultural Center in Istanbul), Bulgaria (‘Lyuben Karavelov’ Regional Library in Ruse), Poland (Municipal Public Library in Gliwice). His artworks are kept in private collections in Ukraine, Italy, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan and USA.
