Viktor Lyapkalo works in the genres of portrait, landscape and nude model painting. Over the last years he has been working on erotic subject matter. The erotic genre attracts V. Lyapkalo because it allows him to touch upon the rich realm of human emotion. Explicit in his representation of sexual subjects, Lyapkalo paints the nude female body more often than anything else. He presents it boldly, not to say frivolously. Because of his bold painting style, his love for vivid color and large form, Viktor Lyapkalo's works are filled with the feeling of joy and fullness of life.
