He is known as the author of genre paintings, portraits, landscapes, still live, and watercolours. Vladyslav belongs to the galaxy of luminaries of the 60’s who rejected academicism in painting. He is believed to be a recognized ukrainian nonconformist, romantic and metaphysician (1960-1970s) and an unsurpassed master of tonal painting. For a long time, he lived and worked in the United States where he executed a series of paintings about America. He is very close to the themes of the artistic heritage of Hopper and Morandi.
