The art of Anton Karyuk is conditioned by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience and feelings of himself. Karyuk seeks to pay attention to art relevant to society as a whole. Art, for him, is an important means for turning thinking into doing things in the world. The diverse works of Karyuk - in painting, performances and installations - were exhibited throughout Europe. Not limited to the scope of the museum and gallery, his practice covers a wider public sphere through interventions in the civil space.

Karyuk was born in 1988. He grew up in Ukraine and studied architecture. He is the member and the founder of the artistic group Step'. The title refers to the birth place Dnipro city, which is located in the steppe climate zone. Since the middle of 2005 Karyuk has realized exhibitions and projects on the topic of social relations in the world of modern media and self-identification.

Karyuk lives and works in Kyiv and Vilnius.
