about ARTIST

David's inspirations

“Visual culture has become a conventional reality of our time, which is represented by images of various kinds,” Daivd says. He learned how to understand our world while exploring and discovering the infinite richness of visual experience he was surrounded by. It was mainly the area of graphic design, typography, and new media that caught his attention at the beginning. 

What does he create now

His works concentrate on abstract geometry and optical art. He explores the visual phenomena of images and how they affect the viewer’s eye. Light and movement are key aspects, as they allow me to discover new mesmerizing dimensions and features of the painting. The use of digital media is still an important part of David’s work. Composing an image in computer programs brings him new creative techniques, which he can, later on, complement traditional art methods. He is well versed in a broad field of art that transcends historical movements and brings contemporary tendencies from an artistic community.

"Creating is about stimulating new ideas and finding ways to articulate them."


Catching the eye

In his work, Hocko uses the term “fragments,” which refers to several conceptual levels. Our personal fragmentary memories, knowledge, and experiences, on the basis of which we shape our subjective view of the world are represented in the psychological dimension. According to him, we create meaningful images of reality by combining individual fragments into coherent units.

Perfect for modern architecture

From the creative point of view, “fragments” are represented by elementary forms, which he adapts to a harmonious composition. The parallel with architecture is reflected in the construction procedures that he applies in the preparation and implementation of the work.
