Ivan’s Land

Ivan’s Land

Ivan Prykhodko is one of the last folk artists of Ukraine. He is self-taught, lives in the village and everything that comes from under his brushes is naive and honest art. Ivan’s world perception, his inner world is full of beauty and joy. One day Ivan’s paintings are searched for in an exhibition at the Art Arsenal, the country’s main exhibition center. Does he exchange a small village hut for glamorous city life, and a society of art critics and agents?
