Vladimir Bachtov

One of the most successful artists in modern Ukraine; he has achieved incredible results in the etching technique, thus his works have been widely acclaimed by professionals and audience. Besides his prints, Bachtov is known for Punic wax tempera paintings, and site installations that have been done at the archaeological sites in collaboration with Greek government.Bachtov lives and breathes ancient Greece: his art is intensely focused on it, he loves the ancient Greek philosophy, and he has built a large hand-hewn ancient Greek style villa (perhaps his largest work of art) in the national archeology reserve of Olvia; Olvia in Grecian times was the northernmost Greek megapolis in the Black Sea region, where human culture there goes back at least 5000 years also and some Stonehenge-like monoliths still stand today in the Olvia area.
