The post-war artist Saenko harks back to the pre-war Russian traditions in his works. During his art training in Leningrad in 1951 he comes in contact with Russian constructivism and avant-garde from the twenties and thirties. The forms, compositions and use of color strongly resemble that of his predecessors, including Kazimir Malevich. Work by Saenko is part of the collection of fifteen state museums in Ukraine and Russia.
