This year, as always, Kyiv offers plenty of entertainment during the winter holiday season, including concerts, Christmas markets, fairs, and festivals. The Kyiv Post looked through the town’s festive program and picked the best entertainment opportunities for those spending holidays in the city.
Those interested in contemporary art would not miss the chance to visit the paintings exhibition “Where is the Verity?” by Ivan Marchuk, a renowned Ukrainian artist whom the Daily Telegraph included in the list of the living geniuses in 2007.
The exhibition is held in the central office of Ukrainian post office company Ukrposhta and displays Marchuk’s 47 artworks representing his various periods – from the artist’s earliest works to his recent masterpieces. Marchuk invented his own art techniques which he calls “plyontanism.” The name originates from a Ukrainian word “plyontaty” – “to confuse.” Instead of painting with strokes, Marchuk weaves amazing lace-like networks on his canvas.
