Miroslava Shevchenko from Kharkiv came second in a national competition for digital art.
The young artist presented the work “We are responsible for those we have tamed.” Her work reflects that nature depends on the person and needs our care. Shevchenko got the certificate of training in the Kyiv Academy of Media Arts.
Artist from Dnipropetrovsk Hillarion Karnaukh with their work “Dogs” won third place and a certificate of training in the Kyiv Academy of Media Arts.
“In my work I open the idea as one item, multiply in a certain chaotic progression, create new textures and meanings, and get lost,” explains the author.
Eugeny Krasulya from Crimea won the competition and won the grand prize – an internship at The Academy of Fine Art in Łódź.
“My work is called a “Period”. It refracts the visual rhythm of the landscape straight line, dividing it into periods. The work expresses the hope that any period ends, and refracted, begins a new round,” said the winner.
In addition, work by another girl from Kharkiv, Valeri Pitlyk received the audience award and a certificate for 10,000 UAH. Her work named “Border existence” raised the question of freedom and internal rebellion, closeness and human loneliness in the modern world.
