Ruslan Malets was born on April 17, 1981 in Horodok, Khmelnytskyi region. He started painting in his early childhood. He made his first works of art on wallpaper. In 1996, he entered the Kosiv College of Applied and Decorative Arts, specializing in artistic painting, and graduated in 2000. Then he studied for a year at the Ivan Trush Lviv State College of Decorative and Applied Arts. For four more years he studied at the Lviv National Academy of Arts, Faculty of Decorative and Applied Arts (Department of Art Glass). After graduation, Ruslan worked as a glass artist for several years. He made stained glass windows in the Tiffany and Fusing styles. The artist also had experience in church painting and stone engraving. But he started painting only in 2019. At first, he depicted his ideas on canvases, and then on wooden boards that once served as fences. For several years now, the artist has been making tablets out of them and thus giving the old wood a second life. Ruslan Malets became famous for his paintings on the boards. Today, his works of art can be seen in leading galleries in Ukraine. They are also kept in private collections in France, Latvia, Italy, and Germany. The artist also participates in group and solo exhibitions. In his works, Ruslan Malets reveals various problems of our time. Mostly of an environmental, psychological, theological, and recently political nature. He has created a series of works on the theme of war. In it, the artist told the world about pain and loss, as well as about the willpower of Ukrainians and the indomitable spirit of the Ukrainian people.
