NFT KHYMYCH MUSEUM is a unique project initiated by KHYMYCH ART FOUNDATION.
The purpose of the Museum is to popularize the work of the outstanding Kyiv artist of the Soviet period, Yuriy Khymych.
The artist’s unique artistic language allows to organically integrate traditional art methods with cutting-edge technologies.
Khymych is called the genius of topos. When traveling to various regions and countries, the artist created extensive cycles and series of paintings, through which he sought to convey a single image of the topos. This is how the “polyptyches” of cities and regions depicted by the artist during his travels and plein-airs were created.
How to realize such a special intention? Khymych himself maintained dialogue with the audience not only at exhibitions, but also through his contemporary media — by publishing his works in sets of postcards, magazines and books. We are trying to solve this task through a new open-ended media, that is NFT.
Throughout 55 years of work, the artist created over 15 cycles, in which, in particular, he featured the architectural worlds of Ukraine, the Baltic States, Armenia, Russia, Georgia, Central Asia, Poland, Hungary and Finland. All of these cycles will be presented by the NFT KHYMYCH MUSEUM in separate NFT-based projects.
Established in 2021, KHYMYCH ART FOUNDATION has set itself the task of consolidating the artist’s legacy. All the artist’s works displayed on the website belong to collectors represented by KHYMYCH ART FOUNDATION.
It is extremely difficult to purchase an original physical work of Khymych from the KHYMYCH ART FOUNDATION collection, but thanks to blockchain technology, you can get a unique digital copy of artwork by the master of architectural landscape as an NFT. Besides, when purchasing an NFT in the Museum, you will be able to get a high-quality full-size print copy of an artwork with the Museum stamp affixed.
Part of the sales proceeds will be allocated for charitable purposes and for the establishment of the physical Khymych Museum.
