Ukrainian Folk Art

Ukraine has a glorious history of the folk arts, with folk painting following a bright floral tradition and textile patterns woven from ancient ritual and culture. From the delicate wax lines of the traditional painted pysanka eggs to the vivid Petrykivka style, Ukrainian folk arts astound and delight!

Petrykivka painting is a traditional Ukrainian decorative painting style, originating from the village of Petrykivka in Dnipropetrovsk oblast of Ukraine, where it was traditionally used to decorate house walls and everyday household items.
