For me, Yuri Siviryn is one of the most significant, fascinating, and pleasant discoveries in the young Ukrainian art scene of recent years. He combines virtuoso skills and a paradoxical view of the world. He immerses the viewer in total psychedelic hallucinations and invites walk through the metaphysical spaces of his own and collective unconscious. He works with stereotypes of mass culture and museums classic. At the same time, it is a computer game, an opera performance, gothic noir, and steampunk. It is an exit from the spacetime continuum and a revolt against anatomy, which is "destiny." I admire Severin's use of color - ascetic, brutal, and refined. His picturesque language refers to the "vacuum tube" black and white cinema, comics, pin-up, and the latest radical figurativeness. It is a great honor for me to acquaint the Odesa audience with the work of Yuri Sivirin. I do not doubt that he will find his fans in Odesa. "
