Panas Tytenko was born in 1963 in the Kyiv region of Ukraine. He graduated from Kyiv Art College in 1981 and from the Ukrainian Academy of Fine Arts in 1987. He has taken part in exhibitions since 1990 and has had a couple of solo shows in the USA, the last one being in 1999. He has been exhibiting in the UK since 1998 with several solo shows and participation in over 40 mixed shows. Most of his work is in private collections in the UK, USA, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium and Poland. Since 1995 his works have been sold at Bonhams and John Nicolson auctioneers in the UK.
"Tytenko's still lifes are centred on flowers, usually in vases, sometimes in baskets. Tytenko's landscapes are typically of sunlit leisure in leafy settings, with the figures dressed in summery clothes, absorbed in some simple pleasant activity, reading, sketching, fishing, feeding ducks or paddling in the sea."
