Pavlo Kerestey is both an analyst and an artist. He aspires to the sound concept and theoretical basis in a painting just like in any other type of creative activity, be it text, video, or performance.  Behind each stroke in his work, there is a well-thought-out and conscious movement of the author associated with current social and cultural context. The author explores demands and expectations in communication between the artist and the viewer, reflecting on the social role of each participant in this interaction. Artist, Draw Me a Picture consists of ten parts and was created in 1990; its manner is radically different from later bright and expressive canvases produced by the author.
