An ancient castle and picturesque places will not leave anyone indifferent. Especially, creative people. This autumn became a bright spot in the palette of recollections of the “Silver Easel” contestants thanks to their participation in Zhovkva art residency.

Zhovkva hosted eight artists, most of whom participated in our contest last year. In particular, Olena and Alina Kryvonos, Yaroslav Leonets, Anatolii Misiuk, Olena Shtepura, Anna Bashlykova, Andrii Bihansyi and Pavlo Hrinenko. The curator of the art residency was another participant of “Silver Easel” contest, the Lviv street-art artist Denys Metelin.

The creative youth spent almost a week in Lviv region, Zhovkva. In addition, they visited a monastery in Krekhov.

Sisters Alina and Olena Kryvonos said: “Zhovkva and its architecture are incredible, in particular, unique atmosphere of the Zhovkva castle. It was interesting and exciting to reproduce the picturesque corners of this city in our paintings. An art residency allows you to touch the history of this city, look at it through the present moment and depict the impressions on the canvas.”

The plein air was planned in such a way that artists could work in different directions, so they created painting, street art and installation.

Thus, for example, Denys Metelin headed not only for the art residency but also the “Cube” project. A young artist implemented it with Pavlo Hrinenko, Nikita Viska and Cash River (the last two did not take part in the art residency).

“The plan was to combine the efforts and ideas of street art artists. Inside the grey monochrome medieval castle, it was placed a bright pink cube, inside which they created their graffiti. Why the pink cube in the castle? They wanted to pull it out of the environment and bring it out of time. The graffiti inside is the inner world of four artists, where different styles of street art are intertwined forming a single whole. ”

The festival is held in Zhovkva for the fourth time, but the art residency was held for the first time. However, according to Denys Metelin, they’d like to make it regular.

According to the results of the plein air, it was held an exhibition of works and then it will be made a catalogue.
