After a month of starvation in Bucha under Russian occupation, the Sixties artist Liubov Panchenko died
After a month of starvation in Bucha under Russian occupation, the artist passed away at the age of 85.
Liubov Panchenko was a well-known fashion designer whose designs were once copied by masters from all over the Soviet Union. However, the artist drew not only sketches for magazines. She also painted Easter eggs, created embroidered folk costumes for choirs, raised funds to help political prisoners accused of ‘anti-Soviet propaganda,’ and revived the tradition of Christmas carols and nativity scenes in Kyiv.
Liubov Panchenko has always supported Ukrainian culture, which she always showed in her works. Various folk ornaments were interwoven in drawings and clothing designs of the artist. Now Panchenko’s works can be seen in the private collections of her friends and the Museum of the Sixties in Kyiv.
