‘SPRING OF MY CHILDHOOD’ BY IVAN GOROBCHUK
Ivan never went to artschool and learnt everything byhimself. His works are famous for romantic & sweet stories about old people from villages, living their simple and happy lives. Gives such a warm and wonderful feeling.
‘RABBITS’ BY MARIYA PRYIMACHENKO
Mysterious and emotionally charged, the works of Maria Pryimachenko, a folk master of Ukrainian decorative painting, seem to absorb the age-old traditions of many generations of Ukrainian master-craftsmen who, from the depths of the centuries, have brought forth their understanding of good and evil, of ugliness and beauty. She never went to art school this is why she could create such a remarkable art style.
‘KAZAK MAMAY’ BY KULAKOV OLEKSIY
Oleksiy is a famous modern artist. His work ‘Cossack Mamay’ is about one of the typical folcloric characters in traditional Ukrainian legends. He is a philosopher, a warrior and a musician, who used to travel around Ukraine, doing good things, telling stories and helping simple people fight against evil.
‘GIRLS IN THE FIELD’ BY MALEVICH
Yes, Malevich was born in Kyiv, but in ukrainian-polish family and still very much honored by Ukrainians. Besides his ‘Black square’, turning away from the abstract, geometric shapes of his suprematist paintings, Malevich returned to figurative art.
