Vlad Hrynko is a visual artist based in Kyiv, Ukraine. Specializes in photography, digital and algorithmic art. Applies computer science background to create something new and mind-bending. Or to find one in a mundane.
Doing photography as a hobby since 2017. Attended Kyiv Photography School to enhance it. Doing commissions since 2023.
Architecture was the first object of interest. Strongly believes, it impacted everything else. Most works are minimalistic, full of lines, shapes and colours. Digital ones tend to be more abstract and chaotic.
Several works were recognized on photo contests, such as ND Awards. Took part in some group exhibitions and a pair one.​​​​​​​
