You're reading: Pavlo Gudimov talks about life away from Okean Elzy
Popular
on social media

One such gifted and lucky person is 39-year-old Kyivan Pavlo Gudimov, an interior and landscape designer, musician, art collector and art show curator.

His life story can make one jealous. A co-founder and former member of Okean Elzy (Elza’s Ocean), one of Ukraine’s most popular rock bands, he also boasts a rather successful solo music career. As if that’s not enough, he owns a design studio and two art galleries. 

Wearing glasses and a grey v-neck sweater, Gudimov looks more like a retired hipster than a former rock star as he sits on the bench in a small exhibition hall at his non-profit Ya Gallery in Kyiv. But wait until he starts speaking of rock music, his Jimmy Hendrix anthology, and how he first heard Ukrainian rock in the early 1990s.
