Vityk began art after getting a PhD in the Earth Sciences and working as a geologist. He began painting in the late 1990s when living in Texas, and later opened studios in Ukraine and the Netherlands. His geology background has greatly influenced his style: his canvases have multiple layers and rock-like textures, broad and energetic brushstrokes and naturally vibrant colors. Vityk currently lives and works in Cairo.

The exhibit features 61 larger-than-life paintings from the artist’s prolific and multifaceted portfolio over the last six years. It continues until May 6th at the ArtsMart Gallery, at KM28 on the Cairo-Alex Desert Road before Dandy Mall and behind Total Petrol Station.
