The official opening of FREEUKRAINKA project – November 19, from 17:00 til 20:00.
Everyone can become a hero of his time! A new story will flare with life at Saksaganskogo str. in the evening of November 19, 2014!
Fateful women! What is their strength? Appearance, intelligence, age, social status, a character? The author says - this is collateral. The depth of their inner world attracted and repelled men as a magnet. Such were called witches. They were able to fill with life, drive crazy devoting themselves. They were loved sincerely and hated, dedicated poems and songs, wanted trade a life for them. Sincerely dreamed to be with and destroy them at the once. Women - phantoms for everyone and no one - locked themselves in their own cage of loneliness and death. They did not compete with men, but gave wings to a rise. And if the whole world was against her husband, she became behind him and passed arrows. In such self-sacrifice they became victims. After creating they destroyed everyone and everything to the ashes. Removing the barriers, they ignored systems and beliefs in sake of ideas. Never stopped, walked with the same pace with time. It is these women who were creating our history, the history of the world ... Who had great strength to rise from the knees, but to prevent this falling! Nevertheless, in her heart, this woman remained little a girl with a faith in a miracle.
Paintings of artist Oleg Lunyov – are the portraits of our contemporaries, famous celebrities and ordinary girls who raise their children, spend weekdays in offices, at lectures, in shuttle buses, supermarkets and... have their own world. Each of them is brave and patriotic. Each makes the world a better place in her own style and makes history. Among them: Tonya Matvienko, Laura Viltsane, Vita Prokopchuk, Rima Zyubina Anna Sagaidachna and others.
Oleg Lunyov - stage designer, artist. Graduated NAFA, member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine (since 2000). Starting from 1997 - Main artist of Kiev National Academic Theatre of Drama and Comedy. Oleg Lunyov paintings are created in a joint project of Vita Prokopchuk FREEUKRAINKA. From here came the name of the FREEUKRAINKA (Free Ukrainian woman). PROJECT FREEUKRAINKA – In focus on everyone - the commandment of the child. We are all grown-up children. No matter what status or title we reached with thoughts, we should tend to the warmth of the soul, because we truly loved and rejoiced simple things in a childhood. Valuing people not for "how much they are worth", but for what value they are in their souls. This kid inside of everyone - has its own world of dreams, ideas and beliefs. An inner voice that always understands backs up and forgives. Because this is YOU.... Talk to it and it will tell you why the sun is shining so bright, why the stars are so high in the sky and how autumn leaves do smell like. The project was created with the aim that everybody should be guided by the heart, but not with fake prejudices... I want to ask "Does anybody love you out there? Hug? Kiss? And do you love? Value?"
At the project FREEUKRAINKA visitors can see the finished portraits, and, at first glance, incomplete paintings. In fact, the author has completed all the artworks, identifying them with the fate of fateful women. The same as each of them has an individual character, has her own destiny and her purpose in life, Oleg Lunyov paintings differ in portraits of every Ukrainian women.
