Galina F. Shamray,

Restoration expert of Dnepropetrovsk State Museum of National History:

“The choice of the artist for the creation of the iconostasis and murals in St. Seraphim Cathedral in Dallas, TX was not accidental. By 2000 Vladimir Grigorenko had grown into one of the best iconographers in Ukraine. His icons and murals are strictly canonical; their images are full of harmony and beauty; the choices of colors are formal and reserved. His compositions are very accurate and well balanced, and all his work demonstrates great sense of style and ensemble...”
