b. 1950 in Kyiv, Ukraine
Yevhen Prokopov is known for his dynamic use of color and texture, these two elements combining to create powerful contrasts in his work. Yet, Prokopov’s work has witnessed many directional sways, his style ever-evolving. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, he produced a series of sculptures of then-famous Ukrainian ballerinas, soon afterward becoming increasingly interested by the way in which sculptures organize space and subsequently creating a body of work through which he conveyed these ideas to the audience. Nearing the end of the twentieth century, Prokopov’s work became increasingly expressive and less figural.
Prokopov lives and works in Chicago, Illinois.
