Petrykivka painting is a traditional Ukrainian decorative painting style originating from the village of Petrykivka in Dnipropetrovsk oblast, Ukraine. This style was traditionally used to decorate house walls and everyday items. The earliest known examples date from the 17th century, and today, it continues to thrive and develop as a modern art form. The distinctive features of this folk art style are its flower patterns and distinctive brush strokes.
Petrykivka painting is included in the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
I very much enjoy this painting style and am happy to share my skills with others. Learning this style doesn’t require previous art education. However, to achieve perfection does require constant practice.
