Semen Scherbina worthily represents Ukraine in the international arena. His works complement collections of art lovers from Denmark, Italy, Sweden and other countries. The early period of the artist's work is characterized by realistic works, at that time he also was known as an icon-painter. As he evolved and transformed, Shcherbyna sought new meanings for his creativity and found them in conjunction with landscape and portrait in an abstract manner.

Now the author works in the genre of abstract painting and depicts the world, listening to his feelings and emotions. Semen Shcherbyna uses paints, shapes, lines, and textures that are difficult to imagine separately, but they come to life on his canvas and create harmonious combinations. The works are thoroughly modified by the subconscious and fantasy of the artist, but at the same time they allow each spectator to perceive the painted differently. The author's paintings are dynamic and ambiguous.

The curator of the project is Leonora Yanko, art critic, art manager and director of Lera Litvinova Gallery. She notes: "Abstract art gives the artist the opportunity to experiment, use original creative techniques and artistic expression. Versatile ideas are embodied in reality with the help of abstract forms, lines, shapes which are combined with color and allow the artist to convey their inner state."
