Painting, 2016
Tiberiy Szilvashi
mixed technique
Tiberiy was born in 1947 in Mukachevo, Zakarpattia region. He took lessons from the Uzhhorod artist Zoltan Bakoni. He studied at the Taras Shevchenko Republican Art School in Kyiv in 1962–66. He studied at the Kyiv State Art Institute (now the National Academy of Arts) from 1965 to 1972. In his second year, he was selected out of five students by Tetiana Yablonska to join her course. He lives and works in Kyiv.

Tiberiy earned his living making diaphanous films at a chronicle and documentary film studio. In 1978, he published the manifesto of chronorealism, which stated that the subject of art research in painting for him was time. He was elected to the board of the Union of Artists. He became the secretary for youth work. The artist organised Sedniv plein-airs. At these plein-airs, a group was born, which later became the core of the “Painterly Reserve” (a creative association founded in 1991 in Kyiv). The main members of the group were artists Tiberiy Szilvashi (the ideologist of the association), Marko Geyko, Alexander Zhyvotkov, Mykola Kryvenko, Anatoliy Kryvolap. The main programme of the association was “neo-formalism”, a departure from figurative painting, where the authors presented the picture not as a window into the world, but as a plane covered with a layer of paint. The main task of the artists was laboratory and research work in the field of modernism, painting as such, colour, texture and form in space. It was about preserving the painting as a language of painting.
