Svitlana Pryhodko is a full-time artist residing in Mississauga, Canada. Painting has always been her passion ever since she was a child. She can remember how greatly fascinated she was by the beauty of chapels and monasteries when spending a lot of time with her grandma in her early childhood. Her soul was overwhelmed by the colourful images, which still inspire her today as examples of purity, mystery and artistic excellence.
Svitlana has been painting on a full time basis since 2002 and has had many successes in that period, including numerous art shows as well as commissions both in Canada and in the United States.
Art school in Kiev, Ukraine, with traditional academic approach to classical painting, and numerous art classes in Toronto combined with modern knowledge of computer science based on a 3 years Diploma program of Centennial College, Toronto, have helped her to sharpen her unique approach of the painting as mosaic interpretation of abstract imagery based on a strong scientific rules of color harmony.
Svitlana's favorite subject to paint is a dreamy colorful landscape in a bold impasto style which gives a plenty room for imagination.
