Exhibition ‘Once upon a time in Ukraine’ of Volodymyr Patyk
Once upon a time in Lviv a young artist Volodymyr Patyk studied painting from Josef Bokshay, Volodymyr Monastyrsky and Roman Selsky. Later he , mostly depicting nature, continued developing the ideas of modernism and avantguardism and therefore bravely resisted the totalitarian system of soviet period. Eventually the artist has made a huge contribution in art of the end of the XXieth century and no doubt deserved the title of the National Artist of Ukraine, he has been awarded the National Taras Shevchenko Premium and his works are considered to be the real pearls of collections of National museums in Ukraine.
Drawings and pastels that were made by Volodymyr Patyk from nature during 70-80s depicting disappearing Ukraine from Crimea to Carpathians will be presented in the exhibition “Once upon a time in Ukraine”.
Once upon a time…wooden churches and mills, thatchered huts, “at the bank in the shadow the boats are tied, and the three willows bended as if they are in sorrow…” From the 22nd of February to 13th of March we will be able to enjoy the craft and spirit of these masterpieces.
