An exhibition of digital prints reproductions of Maria Prymachenko’s paintings from the collection
of the National Museum of Ukrainian Folk Decorative Art will be on display this weekend.
Prymachenko was a Ukrainian folk painter and a representative of native art, who also painted
on ceramics, drew with details and was known for her embroidery. The works painted in the
period 1963-1988 present an incredibly colourful world that is full of fantasy, filled with strange
creatures, animals, floral motifs, as well as scenes from fairy tales. Her works are full of folk
ornamentations painted using rudimentary water-based paints, such as the so-called ‘tempera
for beginners’. It was only towards the end of her life that she could afford to use more
expensive and better quality paints.
