The exposition SUMMER SHOW was aimed to present the creativity of both famous figures of the Ukrainian art scene and little-known young artists, whose works are not less valuable. “What is he-a modern author? What themes do his works cover, what is his range of interests? These are the questions posed by the organizers in the annotation to the exhibition. Slowly leading the viewer to the fact that the time of creative groups, such as those in which the artists of the cultural space of the 90s or 2000s were united, is passing and the time of singles, individual figures in art comes to replace it”.

Among such figures at the Voloshyn Gallery exhibition it was represented Volodymyr Kohut. Presented by the artist work entitled “Archaic Family” - a "primitive flag", as well as a series of “images”-drawings to it. The artist resorts to the mixed expressive technique, using unprimed canvas, acrylic, oil, markers, paper, oil pastel, graffiti paint to create a “general image” and find a connection between people, connected only by him.
