Oleksii Koval—From the Past to the Future: hot enamel painting

“For a long time I looked for the most appropriate technique that would help me bring to life my ideas in harmony with my affections. Destiny brought me to the hot enamel workshop of Ivan Kyrychenko in 2016. I immediately realized that this what I was meant to do and continued investigating hot enamel methods until 2009 in private workshops in China, India and the EU.” Oleksii Koval
