Igor Grechanik sees mission of the artist in releasing of spiritual energy of the person. “ The potential of the person reveals as a result of the communications with art, with the artist. Plunging into the world of art the spectator has an opportunity to touch the source of work, having enriched with new spiritual experience », - it speaks. Also adds: « that the artist can give the world, - to open its many-sided nature, diversity, to show, that the world much more than our concept about it. And impact on this or that side of life gives rise to a new set of images ». Sculptures of Grechanik amaze with dynamism, the grace strained by the form, force of internal energy. In its sculptures the fantastic world of myths and the present have incorporated, the created images understand themselves a part of the mysterious and magic Universe. Enigmatic connections of invoices, gesture, character of a silhouette of sculptural images show existence of the latent secret in the person and the world, allow an impulse to plunge into immeasurable spaces of imagination.
