ARTISTIC PAINTING

Petrykivka painting or Petrykivka is Ukrainian decorative and ornamental popular painting, which was formed in Dnipropetrovsk region in Petrykivka village, from which the name of this kind of art springs. The goods of domestic life with the patterns of Petrykivka painting style were preserved since 17th century. Determinant features of the painting, which distinguish it from other similar kinds of painting (for example, from Ukrainian Opishnia painting and from Russian Khokhloma painting and Fedoskino miniature) are the technique of fulfillment, patterns, their colours and white and black background. These ornaments carry deep cosmological symbolism and special magic meaning of peculiar amulet, which like folk song heals and protects human soul. Today this art is unique relict of continuous national tradition, which delegates into modern world authentic culture of historical cradle of Zaporizhia Cossacks state, its powerful democratic spirit, originality of poetic conception of the world and the depth of epic descriptive popular thinking. Petrykivka painting is distinguished by specific originality and at the same time organically continues popular traditions of the region of Dnipro river, which was phenomenal rich layer of national culture of Ukraine. On 5 December 2013 Petrykivka painting was included in the List of intangible cultural heritage of mankind UNESCO.
