Taras Loboda was born in 1961 in Ukraine. He graduated from the Institute of Art in Kiev (1979-1985). Since 1993 he has been living and working in Prague (Czech Republic). Lobada develops three main motives: woman's portrait, still life and landscape. In women portraits there are splendidly aesthetic female figures - naked or draped into heavy dense cloth. Hi still-life pictures, perfected in a masterly fashion and with a high grade of illusiveness are filled with enchanting radiance, and lit up with a light from another world and that is why so terribly cold (like an ice crystal). In Loboda's landscapes the gloomy masses of vegetation in the foreground emphasize the wild colorful vegetation in the background. Loboda has found his place in the European post-modernist art space.
