"The sun and the sea invited the mountains" – this is how Odesa media wrote about our fellow Transcarpathian Kostyantin Kovhan, who brought his wood products to Odesa.
The artist not only told about the details of his creative work, but also conducted a master class in wood carving for young Odesites.
The exhibition of the carver’s works titled "Living Soul in Wood" was opened at the Ukrainian Cultural Center in early summer. The opening was attended by artists, local media, vocalist of the Odesa regional center of Ukrainian culture Svitlana Rubanovich provided music accompaniment. The exhibition of works by Kostyantin Kovhan will run until June 22, so you still have a chance to see it.
Odesa media noted: "His works exude comfort that is embodied in wood by the skilled hands of a true artist." The Transcarpathian artist tries to adhere to the traditions of the regional school of carving. He likes the works of Vasyl Svyda, Ivan Harapk, Ivan Brovdi and other artists whose works are known outside our region.
So, let’s expand the boundaries. Let the whole country know about Transcarpathian art!
