Galyna Moskvitina - code of light

Galyna Aleksandrovna Moskvitina (Gala) (born 1963) is a Ukrainian painter and founder of the "laternative realism" style. Laternative realism is a creative style based on peculiar perception of light and usage of conceptual images closely associated with notions of light, luminance and luminescence. Moskvitina terms her paintings “svetangs”. According to her, they are a part of adventures of her soul, an expression of her spiritual experiences reflected in pictorial form and dictated by the movement of her soul as well as an expression of the space of light in the objective world.
