Biographical note

"... A bird, flying in the sky is a symbol of freedom. Freedom
is the most important thing in life to me. Freedom of
expression and opinion is like that bird in the sky. It does
not matter what the subject is, it is the creative impulse that
carries me to the sky. With my paintings I want my spectators
to be captured by this impulse and to fly together with me. My
paintings are the "freedom of spirit"!

Igor Gorin, a well-known Ukrainian artist was born on January 28, 1952, in Tiacevo, Zakarpatska Region. In 1969 he enrolled in the Department of Architecture at the Lviv Polytechnic University.  After graduating as an architect in 1977 he worked in Lviv as a landscape architect in 1977–82.  He moved to Western Siberia in 1982, and worked as the Chief Architect of the town of Uray in the Tyumen Region. He began to paint seriously in 1985, and his first personal exhibition was arranged that same year.

He returned to Lviv in 1988, where he built his unique studio, and immersed himself in painting.

He travelled extensively in Europe, where he created his graphic series “Voyages.”

He held personal exhibitions in Ukraine, Russia, Europe, and USA. His participation in group exhibitions was marked with prizes and diplomas.

His works were reviewed in the press and featured in exhibition catalogues and brochures.  Igor Gorin’s personal catalogue was published in 2000.

On June 30, 2011, the heart of this talented artist stopped beating.

He was laid to rest in the Yanivske Cemetery in Lviv.
