Exhibition of canvases by Lydia Uvarova-Krypak

Exhibition of canvases by Lydia Uvarova-Krypak

On June 19, an exhibition of quite unusual leather canvases opened in our gallery. The author of these works is Lydia Uvarova-Krypak, who lost her hearing as a child due to illness, but she did not lose the desire and courage to create. Now Ms. Lydia is a loving wife and mother of four children, and her canvases are recognizable and admired by many art lovers.

Mrs. Lydia was born and lives in Drohobych. In 2000 she graduated from the Stryi Art and Technical School, and in 2003 she graduated from Drohobych Pedagogical University named after I. Franko, Faculty of Fine Arts. Simultaneously with her studies she was engaged in art - created portraits and inscriptions in granite. Her creative works extended to other occupations - ikebana made of dried herbs, wood paintings,  sculpture. Her latest hobby - leather canvases - fascinated her for a long time.

Ms. Lydia's first exhibition took place in 2018. She uses mythology, Ukrainian legends and tales for her creative plots. Sometimes she dreams of a new job at night. In general, in her works you can see plots from biblical, Egyptian, ancient Greek, Ukrainian mythology, but the artist presents already familiar plots in a new way.

"My paintings are always in my thoughts and imagination," says the author of the exhibition. - I am eager to create mostly after having a good time - walks with children, visiting interesting places or an interesting tour. After all, when I feel emotional uplift and good mood. And when I'm having a hard time. At such moments, pictures are born where good defeats evil”.

Welcome to the exhibition!
