An Interview with Vladislav Cadaversky.
Who and from where are you?
My name is Vladislav Cadaversky. Born in 7.7.88. I'm a visual artist and musician from Kyiv, Ukraine.
How you got into this?
Well, to be honest, the art was a part of me since very childhood. Every soul that come to this world has a strong potential and sence of creativity. I captured and absorbed the mystery of things what were unknown to me. There were alot of fears, you know. As some psychological aspects of every child and the space arround. Darkness, mythology and ancient civilizations, creatures from dreams (or even nightmares), as strong magnet, became a whole passion... But aging through a life, some period of time took all of my energy. And for a whole decade there left no place for art... Just silence and reality.
Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument. To perform this difficult 'work' it is sometimes necessary for him to sacrifice happiness and everything that makes life worth living for the ordinary human being.
Since 2014 I came back to this. But with a decision to reload everything. As a perception change the understanding and point of view, I became an intuitive painter. This was some kind of new experience. I finally found how to be myself again.
Artworks were forming from pure abstractions of color and feelings, cosmic visions.
But the more I processed the more I progressed. From pure abstraction came a form. A structures, and a creatures. Tortured by the unconscious visions and memories, every subsequent painting became more detailed. Builded by the layers of textures and colors, to finalise the whole monolith.
What is your driving force?
I always paint with a music. Mostly ambient or dark ambient soundscapes (sometimes other choises of taste). The process of painting in such way became a real meditation. The refflections of passions - myth, fantasy, ancient civilizations and post-apocalypse deserts. The weight of souls in the sand. Connection between inner and outer worlds. My favorie surreal artist is Zdislaw Bekskinski. Who's paintings are the biggest inspiration for me too. My idea is to extend visions but not to copy. Because paintings are always intuitive it makes them even stronger. It is a discovery of unconscious.
What kind of work you do and why?
I do dark, macabre, surreal paintings. Based on different but mixed techniques , experiments with textures , colors and forms. Oils, acrylics and rarely watercolors. Dark paintings are a part of 'shadow' behind the inner soul, an unconscious aspect of personality. I made a couple of comission works for music bands and there are alot of ideas to come.
I also have two ambient music projects which refflects different visual periods.
