Education

Creative path

As a restorer he participated in the restoration of monuments at the legendary Lviv Lychakiv Cemetery, restoring the sculptures of Pinsel at St. George’s Cathedral.

Oleg Kapustyak does not complicate the form, preferring natural lines, plasticity as the basis of sculpture. One of favorite techniques of the master is the combination of textures, the focus on the fragment, not integrity. At the same time impulsive and in-depth, Kapustyak’s works are torn from the real, though they take their inspiration from him.

The sculptor is the winner of the Autumn Salon Prize (Lviv, 1998) and the winner of the second prize of the All-Ukrainian Triennial of Sculpture (Kyiv, 2005).
