Andrew Chebykin not just advised to continue their education in Kiev, and strongly supported the young artist never left unattended. This little touch to the portrait of the famous artist, at first glance, may seem inconsequential. But it’s behind a huge responsibility of the teacher to be capitalized, a citizen and a person daily and hard work that helps to identify young talent, they seek out the most remote corners of our country.

With this technique it has its own vision of the world and rethinking, expressiveness and gives it new life. Valery describes a graphical improvement just as» Graphics worldview”. The first thing that catches your eye – a series works on Biblical subjects that are difficult to perceive only as works of art because they have invested a lot of feelings, emotions and commitment.

However, Valery Kozub convinced that his destiny – the art, no matter how complicated and unpredictable it is. Believes that so it was destined, because this is his soul and heart says.
