“The base for elaborating my own artistic credo was as a matter of fact the experience of all the great masters of the paint-brush and - accumulating their achievements - striving to define my own road by looking at this knowledge through the prism of my personal perception of the world."
ON ROTSCHILD'S WALL, BETWEEN DALI and WARHOL
"Andrew Manaylo began his career as the third member of a Ruthenian painter dynasty. He studied from the greatest masters at the classical painters' Academies.
At the middle of his life, comparable to a roller coaster ride, having received state recognition and international success with paintings, with billionaire buyers and patrons behind his back, he courageously stepped away from the academic painting traditions. Now he is bliss-fully swimming in avant-garde trends of form and content, and approaches a new, wider horizon with strong strokes."

“Andrew’s work is so expressive and skillfully composed, there is no wonder that he is garnering much interest and that his pictures are already in museum collections.
In all my years as a curator and collector, I have rarely come across an artist of his caliber.”
