Ukraine Famous Artists

So, who are the Ukrainian artists past and present that have made an impact. I ran across a few that are interesting. Vladimir Borovikovsky did lots of portraits, but some feel a bit unflatteringly realistic. Kazimir Malevich is a great example of Modernism at its prime. A great website has his work laid out. Am Cassandre iconic posters are also great modern design work. Check out this site of his work. Ivan Marchuk is currently making work that looks like a strange fairy tail story. See this Pinterest site to get an idea of what I mean. The sand artist Kseniya Simonova is kind of a novelty act, but still fun to watch. I am sure there are plenty more I am missing, but these peeked my interest.
