Statement

Braty is an art duo of twin brothers, Ivan and Vasyl Kostenko. We make graphic design, art and everything in between. Traveling serves us as an endless source of inspiration and innovative ideas that enable us to create original and contemporary works with distinctive vision and a sense of zeitgeist. Our approach of working as a duo allows us to complement each other harmonize our
work and is also one of the key factors of our success. Our work is based on representation –liquefied, manipulated or ragmented images take on surreal and even abstract qualities – the created ambiguities invite a dialogue for interpretation. We use digitally manipulated photos, collages, and most recently, objects made of various elements such as paper, laser prints, metal, wire, branches and feathers.
