12 January is the birthday anniversary of Mariya Prymachenko, a legendary Ukrainian folk painter. The artist was born in 1909 and lived her whole life, until 1997, in Ukraine. She is known as an icon of Naïve Art in Ukraine. Her mystical beasts have become emblematic of the whole Ukrainian folk tradition, which surrounded Prymachenko in her childhood: her mother embroidered, father was a talented carpenter, grandmother painted Easter eggs.
For her birthday anniversary, we brought the animals to life in this animation by Ganna Naronina. Read More via EuroMaidanPress.
