hi randy
i am interested in speaking with you about being a speaker for Burlington Fine Arts Assoc for Oct 21 or Nov 18 . You would be talking to a group of 40 or so about your work. A demo or image presentation would be helpful. It pays $200 plus 50 travel for the evening . pleaase let me know if you are interested.

I saw your/this work at the Artist Project in Toronto recently.
One Sign says "Stay Calm" the other says "Interference". Very vibrant colours.

I like these alot I love the colors - at the same time though I feel like I wouldn't hang them it kind of reminds me of rust and I wouldn't want that - but they are amazing paintings very different and definitley trying to say something.

i donno ... i kinda like these.....very diffrent

what do the signs say i cant read them???????but still pretty coo!!!!!!!!:)

Good work. Unafraid to produce visions that people may not find "attractive". The power of these images compares with the brutal forces depicted in Francis Bacons work. Like Bacon, Hryhorczuk's work would hang well in a museum or exhibit forum. I'm especially drawn to the coloration of Hryhorczuk's work as well as the point of view, and subject matter.

All I can think about is driving from my house into the NYC and being bombarded by all of the billboards that fill my peripherals. Gives a surreal portrayal of the looming sense of marketing.

Would look great behind a pool table in a room with all lot of judicious bright white lighting and dark corners.

I like the lonely empty warm feeling these two paintings give off..

usually i dont like paintings
but these are cool
i like the message they speak to me
