Petrykivka to be used for Eurovision 2017 artwork?
According to depo.ua, a Facebook group has suggested to use the unique Ukrainian art form “Petrykivka” in the official design of Eurovision 2017!
Petrykivka is a form of painting that has been in Ukraine for hundreds of years and is now coming back in a type of renaissance. Petrykivka is listed on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
“This is a positive and sincere folk art; it has a long history associated with the Cossacks,” said in the Facebook group.
The idea came about from a student of the L’viv National Academy of Arts, Ihor Lisnyj.
“At the moment it’s just an idea, and the visualization is made for an example. If the art truly becomes “Eurovision,” the professional designers will develop new models,” said Ihor Lisnyj ZAXID.NET
“Now is the time for those responsible for such a decision to officially submit the proposal. But the positive reaction of the community speaks of great interest to a positive decision,” he said.
