Sofiia Yesakova is a student of the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in Kyiv. The young artist decided to take part in the contest, first of all, in order to learn something new, see how young artists from other regions and countries work. The girl was inspired by Uzhhorod, the autumn gold of the Carpathians, and, as a result, received a special prize from Tamara Babak, an artist, co-founder of the art residency “Velykyi Pereviz”. Sofiia also told us about her impressions of the contest and her life after it.
