Service Description

Igor Letinsky. Remember that name! Igor Letinsky is an artist living in Odessa, Ukraine whose prophetic watercolor artworks hauntingly portray a culture and history that is, at this moment, under threat of extinction. Each original watercolor serves to document the beauty and life of Ukraine as it was, and still is in the hearts of its people. On 24 January, 2022, Igor was concluding an exhibition at the Gallery Artodessa in Odessa, Ukraine. One month later, Mr. Letinsky chose to remain at his home in Odessa, to defend the beauty depicted in his work. “When I first viewed Igor’s art, I was overwhelmed with so many emotions,” said Judi Null, Ruston Artisans gallery owner. “His use of watercolor to convey the love he has for his country is compelling. Even more than that, was knowing that this work has documented, for generations to come, what this lovely city may lose forever to the war. Viewing his work, you can imagine the images fading into the background—almost prophetic of what has come to pass. We are blessed and honored to be entrusted with this visual story of Odessa. We pray that Mr. Letinsky remains safe as he protects his homeland. Purchases of Igor’s art will not only benefit relief efforts, people will be buying a piece of history.” Igor Letinsky graduated from the Odessa State Maritime University and also received a second higher education at the Institute of Postgraduate Education at the I.I. Mechnikov. He has been engaged in creativity for as long as he can remember. He is a member of the international volunteer movement Urban Sketchers Odessa. His works have also been exhibited in the Bleschunov House and the Vorontsov Palace. Letinsky’s exceptional body of work will be exhibited as a two-part charity show. Mr. Letinsky’s original works of art will be featured with an exclusive exhibition opening on 27 April, 2022, with a private collector’s reception to be held on 28 April, 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (by reservation only) and a public reception on 29 April, 2022 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Mr. Letinsky will attempt to join the private reception electronically. Our artist and Ruston Artisans will be donating 50% of all sales to Ukraine relief through Rotary International and the Red Cross.
