This painting is alien to the sensation of something intrusive, loud or pompous.
Its characteristic feature is a subtle, well-balanced sound of lines, shapes and textures.
Instead of strange dissonances and shaking the forte, the expression of Leonid Yakubuk’s painting is imbued with magical harmony and movement into silence. In addition to musical thinking, these compositions of color and form show the architectural talent of the painter. As an architect, Leonid Yakubuk builds his images of worlds, but the construction of them is never an end in itself. At the beginning of the work, a textured foundation or background is formed on the prepared cardboard or wood, the strict two-dimensionality of which is interrupted by the intuitive rhythm of relief and scratches. Often this is a bright golden-yellow base that emits light, typical of the transcendental glow of icons.
The design of well-balanced lines, geometric elements and floating repetitive fantastic forms creates a sort of a really existing abstract world, but leaves enough room for viewers' ideas and associations.

Doctor of Art Heike Velzel.


Works are in the collections of the Russian National Library, Check Point Charlie Museum (Berlin),
