This is my paintings in Petrykivka style
Petrykivka painting is one of the oldest types of folk painting in Ukraine.
It originates from the village of Petrikovka, Dnipropetrovsk region,Ukraine.
Separate items remained with this style of painting since the 18th century.
However, in modern style, it was formed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The origin of the Petrykivka painting is associated with Cossacks and the settlement of the Dnipropetrovsk region by people from Poltava, Slobozhanshchina and Podolia.
Samples of painting in this style became popular by D. Yakornitsky and E.Evenbach. They developed in the form of wall painting (,, Malevka ,,) for interior decoration.
They were painted on folk tools, chests, sleighs, seeders. Drawing products in this style finished by varnishing, overglaze and underglaze porcelain painting, glass painting, painting leather wallets. Also, patterns were taken for embroidery blouses and towels.
Now Petrykivka painting was formed as an independent type of decorative graphics and widely spread throughout the world as anĀ  original separate art school.
Petrykivka style of painting is characterized by a floral ornament that continues the traditions of Ukrainian Baroque.
It uses a variety of colors and compositions with various materials and techniques
Can be made with watercolor, oil, gouache, acrylic, tempera with homemade brushes (made fromĀ  cat wool) or fingers, pipette, reed sticks on a light, black or colored background.
In January 2013, Petrykovka style painting was brought to the intangible cultural heritage of Ukraine by order of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine.
On December 5, 2013, the Petrykinka painting was included in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity (UNESCO)
