Biography

Was born in 1987 in Barysau, Belarus. In 2003 he entered Glebov Art School in Minsk. After graduation he left for Poland, where he studied at the University of Nicolaus Copernicus. Eugene Shadko, a Belarusian artist who works and lives in Warsaw, has long approached his creative path with a unique thirst for experimentation and fundamental knowledge of the human essence. Each of his compositions begins with reflective images found on various platforms, social networks, his pictures, accidentally noticed images on the Internet that he passes through himself, explores, transforms into his narrative. Each painting is a work made of a multitude of individual thoughts and images. Faces and body parts are most often the priority in the paintings. A series of portraits presents characters, personalities, frozen in time, as if a stopped moment. Anatomical body parts are often displaced, altered, fragmented; the man in the picture exists among different situations and times at the same time. Thus, the heroes find themselves snatched from their personal stories. The documentary accuracy of photography is cancelled, and the characters are immersed in the struggle of the picture elements with each other. Collision, penetration, displacement and layering of color masses, textures and layers, bring to the fore the tactile nature of painting and leave only pose, gaze and perspective - something very unsteady, almost random, but the most essential and intimate. The objects that appear in his paintings glow with bright colors, and sometimes peep imperceptibly from the background, giving the viewer the opportunity to reveal the idea of the picture and the uniqueness of the event more widely.
