Easter eggs painting (pysankarstvo)


Member of the National Union of Folk Art Masters of Ukraine, member of the All-Ukrainian Council for Research and Revival of the Easter Eggs Painting, the winner of the Regional Award named after Ya.Lukavetskyi


Master became interested in pysankarstvo more than 15 years ago, when he started collecting and painting authentic pysanky of Pokuttia. He collected materials on the history of pysanka origin and techniques of its making, drew from the old masters’ works representing original Pokuttia ornaments. His collection of painted Easter eggs houses about 200 items.


He uses quail, ostrich, goose, and chicken eggs. The master writes in such techniques as batik (wax) and etching. Master’s pysanky are rich in patterns and colours. In his collection there are pysanky depicting plants, fish, and colourful birds. Children coming to learn how to make pysanka, will like a legend about ancient times, when all the birds were black and white. Once the angel took paints and painted them in different colours. And only for the magpie, which was late and last, it was not enough colours, so it remained black and white. Since then, the magpie chatters loudly and complains everybody about her fate. This bird is also depicted on one of the eggs.

Master class can be held at home in his own workshop for a group up to 5 persons.
