Petro Lebedinets was born in Ukraine in 1956. He graduated from the Kiev State Academy of Arts in 1984 and quickly gained recognition both in the Ukraine and Europe.

Lebedynets takes colour and texture to new heights. He describes his art as the “reality of abstraction.” His art exists independent from the visible world. In essence, he has managed to breathe new life into the tradition of European non-figurative art. “I constantly experiment in the system of vivid harmony, and not of destruction,” states Lebedynets. He was ranked number four of the top hundred contemporary artists in Ukraine by the national project “100 Artists: Modern and Contemporary Ukrainian Art since Independence”.

He is the member of the National Artist’s Union of Ukraine since 1990.
His work can be found in private collections in the U.K., Germany, Switzerland, France, Austria, Belgium, Poland, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, and the United States.
