Weekend with Culture from Ukraine and Poland- art and cuisine

Weekend with Culture from Ukraine and Poland took place from 25th to 26th of March 2023 and was organised by Polish Institute New Delhi, Embassy of Ukraine in the Republic of India and ALMA Bakery & Café.
This project comprised of an exhibition of Maria Prymachenko paintings, art workshop PAINT me FOLK and traditional dishes from the Ukraine and Poland as special plate menu.
The exhibition consisted of digital prints of paintings by Maria Prymachenko (1908-1997), a Ukrainian folk painter, and representative of naive art, who also worked on drawings, embroidery, and painting on ceramics. Selected works, painted in the years 1963 – 1988, present an incredibly colourful world full of fantasy, filled with strange creatures (e.g. black beast), animals (bull), floral motifs (peacock among hops), as well as scenes from fairy tales. The exhibition presented reproductions of Maria Prymachenko’s paintings from the collection of National Museum of Ukrainian Folk Decorative Art.
