On April 8, at Uzhhorod art salon “Diptych” there was an interesting introduction of the works of the former Lviv resident and now Canadian Kseniia Sapunkova.

The sound and semantic alliteration of the poetic title of the exhibition “Flow ...  Current ... What I ...” had to adjust to the corresponding in-depth perception of works performed primarily with watercolour. Small formats have a graphic sound, the composition is built in tone-restrained palette. Some of the works are the illustrations of poetic and other works, although in general, all works are created in a certain illustrative style. The animated work of the author was also presented on the laptop screen. The exhibition was opened by Lviv poet Andrii Hretskyi, who repeatedly visited Uzhhorod as a participant of the art festival “March cats”. The youth audience of the salon was interested in Andrii's poetry. He read his poems from a single advance copy of his collection, published in Canada and illustrated by Sapunkova.

Kseniia studied sculpture at Lviv Art College named after I. Trush. In 2008, she continued her study at Sheridan Art College, Toronto. Now, she is engaged in interpretive illustrations and iconography. She works in multimedia and traditional techniques.
