All proceeds go support the Ukrainian artists who now became refugees after the war broke out and to buying equipment for a new Childrens Hospital in Lviv, Ukraine.
Ukrainian painter Polina Kuznetsova. Born in Kharkiv where she studied at the Kharkiv State Academy of Design andArts, Kuznetsova fled to Tallinn, Estonia, at the onset of the war.
Kuznetsova often focuses on the landscape of dreams in her work, contrasting deep backgrounds with elaborately textured portrait subjects.There is an emphasis present on silhouettes, the folds of fabric, and ambiguous geometric forms – Kuznetsova’s is a unique and cohesive artistic language that creates a sense of ease and intrigue.
Kuznetsova’s style is perhaps most clear in My hero (2020), an almost mystical portrait of a man in pink coat. Against the darkest of backdrops, stands calmly and serenely as a beacon, and welcomes the viewer with open arms. The breadth of Kuznetsova’s technical ability is clear, from the wide, haphazard brush strokes of the background to the fine details of the hair.
Kuznetsovas’ works have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Europe and the USA.
