Borys Radenko has brought into the realistic still life genre a lightness in the perception of common everyday objects, which have been "taught" to pose for him. Having started as a copyist, he has succeeded in creating his own school, which is based on a combination of Dutch, Italian, and French classical painting styles.
His works are kept in private collections in Ukraine, Russia, Germany, Libia, Greece, and USA.
