Bright colors, original patterns, original technique – all this is Petrykivka painting. Buying a gift box, a decorative plate or a souvenir kitchen board painted in the best traditions of Ukrainian folk craft means demonstrating good artistic taste and adherence to national traditions.
In the Ukrainian decorative and ornamental painting, which originated in the 19th century in the Dnepropetrovsk region (the village of Petrikovka), the motifs of the Ukrainian baroque were preserved and developed. Over the three centuries of its existence, national painting has become an independent type of decorative and easel graphics, formed and spread as a unique art school. A variety of coloristic and compositional solutions brought the products of Petrykivka craftsmen to the top positions in world art.
Real forms of local flora, fantastic flowers, berries and openwork foliage – thanks to a clear eye, Petrykivka craftsmen do not draw according to the drawn contour – their hand is driven by inspiration. Each product is inimitable and unique – the virtuosity of the image is achieved with the help of a thin brush, special sticks and the artist's fingers.
The art of decorating folk under-lacquer painting is at the peak of popularity today. By order of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine, it is included in the list of intangible cultural heritage of the country. In the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, a place of honor is given to Kosovo ceramics and Petrikovskaya painting.
