New artist representation Max Sheika !!!

We are very pleased to announce new artist Max Sheika.

Born in Lviv, Ukraine, Max began his foray into the world of art surrounded by parents who established numerous significant art and cultural projects in Ukraine and founded the Gerdan art gallery in Lviv. Max pursued his studies in architecture at Lviv Polytechnic National University. During this period, he collaborated with architects and designers from around the world, working as a visual artist to bring their visions to life through digital renderings. Max earned his Master of Architecture in 2020.

In 2019, Max was invited to The Netherlands by a Dutch company, marking his entry into the captivating realm of 3D animation. Here, he crafted digital experiences for renowned global brands. Constantly delving into imaginary worlds, he crafts aesthetically intriguing pieces. One of his standout animations was showcased at NFT NYC in 2022. That same year, Max was invited by Domestika to teach a 3D animation course.

During the onset of a full-scale Russian invasion, Max, committed to supporting Ukrainians, teamed up with Spatial to create a virtual “Peace Pavilion”. This space exhibited the works of prominent creators, including Ringo Starr, Krista Kim, and Vogue Singapore. All the proceeds from this endeavor were directed towards aiding Ukrainians.

With a diverse palette of techniques and mediums at his disposal, he crafts pieces that stand at the intriguing crossroads of the ephemeral world of bits and bytes and the tangible realm we inhabit. His goal is to immerse viewers in a sensory journey, evoking deep-seated emotions and sparking sensory reactions. In every creation, Max invites his audience to experience a world where the digital and physical seamlessly intertwine

Drim is a striking sculpture that captures the essence of a boy with big dreams, living in a complex and intricate world. It features a boy, wearing an astronaut helmet and jet pack, a symbol of his intelligence and ambition. The world around him is full of distractions and challenges, but the helmet offers him a place of solitude and protection. His feet clad in fashionable shoes. The boy’s hands are tucked away in his pockets, and his belly speaks to his comfort-loving ways.

Not all those who wander are lost.
