The article examines the body of works of the artist O. Denysenko in the levkas technique, the plot component of which is stylistically formed images with embedded ethnic motifs. The main features of the manifestation of selfidentification in creative variations and artistic experiments of the artist are considered. The national identity, traditions of history and culture of the people are reflected thanks to the ornamental and symbolic system, which acts as a tool of image creation. Attention is paid to the search for new images, methods and pictorial techniques in levkas with the aim of emphasizing the individual manner of the artist. Particular attention is paid to stylization, the uniqueness of figurative and symbolic language and an individual approach to the interpretation of cultural heritage. The main influencing factors on the formation of general and personal national identification, where language, customs, rites, traditions, archetypes and art are manifestations of national identity, are identified. The transition from ethnoculture to the accumulation of material and spiritual values, which arose with the appearance of writing, is determined by special features of culture. These signs indicate a transition from general to personal identification. The article aims to investigate the main plot motifs related to national selfidentification, which are present in O. Denysenko's creative work. In this context, the ornamental ethnic motifs and symbolism of the artistic language used by the artist in his works are analyzed. The relevance of preserving cultural heritage and positioning national identity is demonstrated by the language of art. Further research can be aimed at identifying the features of the symbolic language used by the artist, the search for new pictorial ways of self-expression, including the analysis of the use of metaphors, a peculiar color, compositional techniques and other elements that contribute to the creation of a characteristic individual style and a complex of means of expression in the artist's work.
