‘Ukrainian View of Ireland’: An Exhibition of Paintings

20 March 2023

Clare Arts Office in conjunction with the Cultúrlann Sweeney Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of paintings by Yeni, artist from Ukraine.

Venue: Cultúrlann Sweeney Gallery, Kilkee, Co. Clare

Date: 7th March, 2023, to 7th April, 2023


Yeni was born and raised in a small town. From an early age, she began to draw portraits of classmates, design posters and engage in all kinds of artwork at school. She participated in many art competitions and designed classes and teleconferences and wrote, both on the walls and on canvases.

Most of all, Yeni is inspired by nature, the world of animals, characters from children’s cartoons, love between mother and cubs, and she also likes to depict a family idyll on her canvases. For her work, she received a large number of awards and was written about in the local newspapers. She studied at the Moscow University of Arts.

In 2009 she organised an exhibition in Kyiv. Her paintings were bought by clients from Croatia, Taiwan, Ukraine and the US. Yeni’s works are in the offices of Ukrainian politicians, collections of Taiwanese entrepreneurs and local NCKU professors, private homes of art lovers, restaurants and some Irish families.

Yeni states “it is a huge pleasure to enjoy participating in art exhibitions here in Ireland” and she invites everyone to come and see her wonderful exhibition in Cultúrlann Sweeney Gallery in Kilkee.

This free exhibition runs until 7th April, 2023, and everyone is welcome.
