Bringing Ukrainian art to China

"Chinese collectors are very smart. They can understand our paintings without the boundary of language and cultural difference," said Mykhailo Molodozhonov, a gallery owner from Kharkov, Ukraine.

Molodozhonov, 41, started to run his own business with China 10 years ago. His brother Valerity Shmatko, 50, is an artist widely known in Ukraine, Europe and the US. Seeing the great potential of the Chinese art market, the brothers decided to work together to encourage more Chinese to know about their Ukrainian art and staged their first exhibition in Beijing in 2014.

"I like my brother's paintings most. Some of the pictures depict our city Kharkov and I like them." Molodozhonov said.
