Most of the works of Bohdan Soroka are the result of deep reflections on different puzzles of life. As a unique individual, the artist brought a new color into Ukrainian artistic life. As an artist and as a folk art collector, he combined epochs of Ukrainian culture, the natural but slow development of the nation, that despite its independence, is still fighting for its identity and its place amongst free nations.?
