A major Italian art foundation acquired Yuriy Sivirin artwork at Roma Arte in Nuvola.
From 17 to 20 November, a contemporary art fair organized by Alessandro Nicosia took place in Rome. Ukraine was a guest country in focus and attracted a lot of attention. Italian public highly appraised works of Ukrainian artists, and among favorites was the work of Yuriy Sivirin "Capsula". The piece was later acquired by The Bank Collection - Italian art foundation that collects international contemporary art. Italy's leading media - La Repubblica devoted an entire article to Ukrainian presentation at Rome Arte in Nuvola, starting it with a comment on Yuriy's work and how it unusually depicts the drama of Ukraine's current situation, even though it was painted two years before Russia's full-scale invasion. This is a great success and a breakthrough for Ukrainian culture at the international art scene.
