Sacred art accompanies each person throughout their whole lives. Icons are blessed at the moment of baptism, at the moment of wedding… As for woodcut, it is an old technique of mass-produced art available to the broadest audience. At the moment, my artwork is the continuation of an almost lost craft in Ukraine.
I work in the technique of letterpress printing, both longitudinal and transverse. The materials has not changed for more than a thousand years: wooden board, cutters, and paper. I combine this all with the technique of woodblock textile printing (hand printing on fabric).
I draw my inspiration from the old masters of the technique. That is why I mainly create sacred art. It’s a tribute to the almost lost tradition of folk woodcut and textile printing.
