Appeal to folk art for him, a man who grew up in a peasant environment was natural. Patyk entirely came from within the national art and managed to foster it to the level of modern artistic thinking and professional mastery.

A kind of picturesque school was for Patik work on still life, composed of works of folk craftsmen of Western Ukraine.
