Travel To Art and the Ukrainian Art Community

Travel to Art magazine invited the art community at the Boutique Design Showhouse. It is a unique concept art house with a magical garden designed by interior designer Sogol Afsharjavan. Among the decor, one could find art postcard “beauties collection” from the Ukrainian artist Alla Boyka. Alla is now in Rome preparing a new project for the Ukrainian brand memème. Its founder, Vlad Guristimba, raffled gifts for the guests of the evening.

The winners were the representatives of the Ukrainian project Rudenko Art Pro and Sofia, the daughter of the famous Ukrainian artist Andrey Chernovol. All the evening guests had the opportunity to join the painting “Magic Garden – Ukraine.” Not only Ukrainian artists but also well-known artists attended the performance. Some were Havi Schanz from Argentina and Luca Artioli, an Italian photographer. The artwork used acrylic paints from the Ukrainian manufacturer Art Kompozit. According to Dmitry Ostapenko, the brand will soon be introduced to the American market.

A Night to Remember

“My big dream is to present this painting at my Ukrainian fair during Art Week Miami. Every artist now in Ukraine is an ambassador of peace. Through art, we must convey to every heart what politics cannot solve.” Said Alexey Didigurov, publisher of Travel to Art and the ideological inspirer of the art community in Miami.

Among the guests were Silvia Barisione, chief curator of the Wolfsonian museum, and Tatyana Zabora, who represented two young Ukrainian artists: Les Panchyshyn, Yuliya Grzmehle, at the Spectrum fair, as well as Denis Belkevich, international art expert, Diana Dorozhkina, Svetlana Kirichik, and her husband.
