About the Artist

Oleg Kateryniuk was born in 1969 in Ukraine.. has made a successful career as a graphic designer.. But, over the years we become more sensitive to people, to nature, to the environment, to everything around us. So something happened, noticed, interested you and sits in you, with its emotions, feelings, its truth and philosophy.. no-no, it does not bother you, just sometimes, as if talking to you, tells your story, pulls your strings souls, and are forced to flee in search of something new, still unnoticed, and very, as it seems at this time, so necessary.. and not only you.. And in such moments you take a pencil, brushes and everything at hand.. and you draw.. being left alone with canvas or paper and your thoughts.

Artistic Vision

Through "Dust of Civilizations," Kateryniuk captures the unsettling reality that the legacies of mighty empires can dissolve into obscurity, illustrating the precariousness of history and culture. The chaotic brushstrokes and slippery textures within the painting symbolize the slippery grip we have on our past, while the expansive canvas size allows the viewer to immerse themselves in the artist's vivid portrayal of cultural dissolution.

Thematic Depth

This painting is not merely a visual piece; it is a philosophical exploration of how the sands of time shift under the weight of human endeavor. The artist uses a muted yet impactful color palette to evoke feelings of nostalgia and loss, effectively communicating the melancholic realization that all achievements, no matter how grand, are vulnerable to the ravages of time.


Efforts have been made to accurately represent the painting through photos that capture the essence and detail of the work, providing potential buyers with a clear understanding of its quality and condition.

Invitation to Reflect

This painting invites its viewers to ponder the impermanence of human achievements and the continuous forward march of time. It is an excellent choice for any space where thoughtful reflection and intellectual dialogue are cherished.

Whether displayed in a home, office, or gallery, "Dust of Civilizations" is more than art; it is a conversation starter and a stark reminder of our temporal existence, making it a profound addition to any art collection.
