Dan Poharyskyi (1989, UK) studied illustration at Norwich University of the Arts but has spent the last four years living in Prague where he is trying to perfect his personal approach to portraying architecture.
Using patterns to depict a nostalgic sense of order lost in today’s chaotic world, he uses pencils to create detailed cityscapes, and contrasts strong architectural lines with stylised natural features. He also flattens the perspective to create a forced, stage-like effect.
This individual worldview comes from a strong interest in the decorative forms of early twentieth century art and design.
Recently he has been trying to introduce bold colours into his work and also simplify architectural details to create a more fantastical view of the world.
